They won’t just admire the photos either, it really does have excellent practical advice and tips that even the most seasoned sari wearer will appreciate. 

The book begins with a description of the origins sari, including incredible facts that even we didn’t know…like saris have been around for 5,000 years! 

Described by Kalapana as ‘a length of fabric that clings to a woman’s body like a long lost lover, embracing her curves, concealing her flaws and extolling her virtues’, if you don’t own one, or haven’t worn one for a while, after leafing through the gorgeous images and fashion photography, you will certainly want to, especially as you’ll now know how to wear one.
