Bikini saree - a new entrant to the world of party fashion, and swimwear!
The bikini saree has the distinct USP of being not only an article of ethnic fusion wear, but is also becoming vastly popular as swimwear for the demure woman for whom maintaining a balance between glamour and modesty is a must. A mark of pride for the creators of the bikini saree is the manner in which it has been embraced and worn at both, Bollywood and Hollywood events by actors in the likes of Bipasha Basu, Dita Von Teese, Nicki Minaj, Padma Lakshmi, and Fergie; Basu recently opted for a bikini saree by the concept creators, Shivan and Narresh during the Indian International Film Awards (IIFA) ceremony recently. Also known as a “resort saree”, the versatile and beautiful bikini saree can be draped in up to 12 different ways, so one has the option of exuding various fashionable looks within 1 saree. This is a valuable piece of knowledge for a potential buyer to acquire, as a designer bikini saree by Shivan and Narresh is likely to set you back by a minimum of $700! Of course, non-designer and high street editions are available at more affordable prices.
Bikini sarees are not merely a designer outfit; they are a unique invention, constructed using a yard and a half of georgette or crepe, which can be draped in multiple ways. They also have elements of Italian jersey fabric, which is sturdy and does not require ironing or pleating, and also have pockets for your cellular phone and other small accessories. They are popularly referred to in fashion magazines as the ideal “beach to bar” outfit, as one can easily convert the saree to suit both casual beach and swimming pool events, as well as more formal evening events.
