Wedding Coming Up? Drape Yourself With Chiffons, Silks And Insta-Sarees By This Designer Label
What Makes It Awesome
Sakhi Fashions’ experimental saree styles, on-trend designs all on classic silhouettes is the answer to when you don't know what to add to your ethnic wardrobe. Traditional, modern, or something in between, Sakhi Fashions should be your go-to for the next saree splurge. Something between a designer store and a retail outlet, Sakhi has contemporary drapes, prints, and jewellery whether you’re looking for something to wear on the daily or for an occasion.
With two outlets, one in Indiranagar and one in Jayanagar, the mother-daughter label specialises in designer sarees, dupattas, kurtas, and anarkalis. Classic designs apart, they have a range of ‘insta sarees’, reversible sarees (silks and cotton) ruffle sarees, and ready to wear half sarees and celeb-inspired styles off the rack. The collection at Sakhi stands out for their pastel chiffons with delicate floral prints, silks, and tussars with unconventional brocades and lace borders, and kalamkari designs on both sarees and blouses. They also have lightweight and bridal lehengas that you can sport for the wedding season.
All their pieces have a touch of glamour to them, but should you not be convinced with what they have on display, they take custom orders too. These orders can go beyond the saree and kurta to capes, dresses, Indo-Western outfits, skirts, kids wear and even menswear. They have fabric available for just this purpose (which you can purchase on its own as well). Pair your potential or purchased outfit with some jewellery and accessories available in store that the staff will help choose based on your style preference. Choose from their metal and semi-precious stone pieces, tribal-inspired, or terracotta collection be it for that statement piece or cocktail party vibe whether you're saree or not saree.
What Could Be Better
While their funky and contemporary collection is worth the money, their completely traditional sarees are relatively pricey.
They ship around the country (and world apparently), so if you know what you want, have given your measurements, and are pressed for time, you can get them to deliver it to where you are.
