After the film Premam was released there was a huge liking towards the black shirt-white mundu combination used by the hero.
The interesting part was it was not only boys who got inspired but also the girls breaking conventional way of dressing campuses saw them dressing up!
Sonya Sandiavo the celebrity stylist posted a picture of her wearing a saffron-coloured mundu on her social page. Sonya received a lot of praise and queries asking her for suggestions!
“This is not the first time I am wearing a mundu. I try and wear it at home — it is very comfy and good to wear during the summer. The misconception that mundu is a guy’s attire should change. Unlike before, people are open to experimentation in fashion. If you have the confidence, you can carry off any clothing with ease,” Sonya assures.
Sonya, who is planning to wear mundu for parties and concerts, along with her girlfriends, says the experience is refreshing and great.
Chennai designer-stylist Amritha Ram says “Nothing can beat the beauty of a veshti if one could flaunt it confidentially. Our favourite costume saree has a come a long way and has found global acceptance. Though a few disagree on the draping style, it has conquered our hearts. Likewise, the veshti too will go through all the criticisms and finally win! I constantly look around for ways to tweak the presentation in different costumes. Even if it is the same pattern or fabric, what makes the difference is how we present it.”
