The most Indian thing about me is that I love getting dressed up in the vibrant colours, rich fabrics and fabulous accessories that traditional Indian style is centred around. I don't normally wear bright colours or heavy jewelry, so it is fun to get "decked out" a few times a year for a wedding or other celebration. The choices are diverse and numerous. Below is a photo of one of my all time favourite Indian outfits: a cream coloured chiffon sari with fuschia threadwork, mirror detailing and scalloped edges.

I was proud to see a brand like Chanel be influenced by Indian culture enough to create a whole runway show inspired by India. You can go to You Tube to see the Paris-Bombay Metier d’Art collection in full, as well as below for some of the designs up close.
