The month has been a mega-hit on the fashion front with many top couture pics and headline-grabbing style choices being made by renowned personalities. From Akshata Murty’s pastel pink Raw Mango saree for the G20 Summit and the lineup of standout sarees at the famous Ambani party to Parineeti Chopra’s sequinned number for her sangeet night and Shilpa Shetty’s nauvarisaree for Ganesh Chaturthi festivities, we have seen some stunning numbers over course of the month. So let’s look at some of the most exquisite sarees from this September.
UK’s Prime Minister Rishi Sunak’s wife Akshata Murty’s pick for her goodbye to India after the G20 summit was a gorgeous pastel pink drape from Raw Mango. The occasion was significant both for politics and fashion as it was the first time on the trip that Akshata was seen in a sari. According to the brand’s Instagram post, Akshata’s pick was a silk and organza Bhayli saree with gota details and embroidered peacock motifs paired with a Pali silk blouse. This outfit was one of many ensembles on the trip that this fashion connoisseur picked to highlight homegrown desi brands and celebrate Indian textiles.
Yuko Kishida, the wife of Japanese PM Fumio Kishida wore a traditional Kanjeevaram saree at the much talked about G20 dinner and looked exceptional. The deep green-hued saree came with gold and contrasting pink patti borders with zari work.
