Seven Pleats

 
 

This collection is inspired by the sophistication of the traditional sari silhouette – the way the pleats gather at the center of the waist and accentuate a woman’s hips, the manner in which the drape calls attention to the curve of her back. Sheena Sood, designer and founder, set out to create easily wearable garments with a nod to her own heritage.

Her new take on the sari features two highly inventive, adaptable styles: a wrap skirt with seven deep sari pleats, and a one-shoulder blouse with an attached scarf. These pieces can be worn both together and separately, and, like the sari, can be draped in many different ways.
