Is it a bikini? Is it a sari? No, it’s a Sarini, a world first in swim gear to be launched in Britain next summer. It allows Asian and Anglo-Asian women to swim without loss of modesty. The quick-dry outfit is not too figure-hugging but tight enough to swim freely. The £99 Sarini has a wraparound which can be removed for a swim and reattached for the walk back from the beach. It will be available in two designs – Calcutta Chic and Delicious Delhi. Source : http://www.express.co.uk
India compromising on its culture: Pakistani designer
For outsiders, India is about its culture and tradition, but swanky malls, international labels, expensive cars and fast-food chains are taking away its true flavour, believes Pakistani designer Sahar Atif.
She, however, continues to love the country's three Fs - food, fashion and freedom. "Westernisation has brought malls, money, international chains to India. Today you name any top-notch brand and it is available in India. All my Indian friends are in awe of that and are relieved that they don't have to go anywhere else," Sahar, who was in the capital recently to meet friends, said in an interview. "For any outsider, be it me or any foreign tourist, the India we know is when you promote 'Incredible India', that is what drags most of the tourists to India. "For us, this city is not about malls and international chains, it is all about Lajpat Nagar, Janpath, Sarojini Nagar and Dilli Haat," added Sahar, a regular at the Pakistan Fashion Design Council Sunsilk Fashion week (PFDC-SFW).
