It has a choli in shirred navy silk fabric, cropped below the bust and edged with dangling jet black beads. Poppers hold the drape in place on the left shoulder.
The main body of the sari is a wonderful pale gold striped silk fabric with a wide navy border with intricate gold embroidery, and embroidered paisley leaf motifs finished with tiny mirrors. Embroidered paisley details on the gold background of the sari with matching small mirrors.
Ankle length wrap skirt, fastening at the waist, with a continuous panel looping around the back and over the left shoulder. The wrap skirt has a fitted waist fastening at the side and falls in abundant folds of fabric to the ankle.
The entire sari piece is edged with beautiful faux pearls and finished with gold and turquoise silk tassels.
