The Magic of Margazhi

The month of Margazhi which is also referred to as Dhanur masam, is of great significance, according to the Hindu calendar. Margazhi is welcomed by kolams, special early morning pujas, music concerts and keerthanams. And so, we can see the colourful kolams drawn by women at their doorsteps in the early morning.

The month of music, dance and drama officially starts today. But the music festival has already kicked off! The music festival which started off in a small way in 1927, for about 10 days has now emerged into something immense and starts as early as mid-November and continues till mid-January. Along with the ragas and melody, splendid silk sarees and tussar weaves adorn the Margazhi concerts. The kutcheris and carnatic songs get enriched with the ethnic look that the singers render to them. The performing artistes draped in the silk saree and decked up with jewel have a special place in every rasika’s heart. The endless conversations between the listeners will also include the type of silk saree, the colour and the border along with the thalam, ragam, swarams during the concerts.

Just as artists are coming up with new ragas and themes for rasikas of music, Pothys innovates and presents new designs and trends in silk sarees for the kutcheri goers. One just can’t witness the world-famous music festival and the Margazhi season without the rustle of charming silk sarees!

What to wear to a wedding?!!

Wedding silks

 When one gets a wedding invite, the first thing that comes to mind is what to wear for the different events and how to look different from everyone else. Everything else takes a backseat and dressing gets to the fore front if it is a friend’s wedding! Here are some tips that might help you gear up for a wedding:

1. Your outfit should definitely represent your own personality and suit your age.

2. Teaming up with embellished blouses enhances the beauty of the saree.

3. For a pastel shade saree, a dark contrasting blouse will suit well.

4. A halter neck blouse will suit a sheer soft silk.

5. An ornamental blouse is all it takes to look opulent. Go for a stunning looking ornamental blouse that matches the saree.

6. Keep it simple with accessories when you go for a rich looking silk saree.

7. A clutch is a must, when you decide to be a showstopper. The colour and texture of the clutch should suit your clothes.

8. Matching footwear is also a must, to complete the look. Embellished and metallic shades are most preferred to pair with silk sarees and designer sarees.

9. Fish tail braids are very much in now. Sport one for a trendy look! Go with curls and waves for a plain saree for a perfect look!

10. Go for a heavy American diamond stone studded necklace for a simple saree and choose a long earring with a simple chain for a grand saree.

11. Eye makeup and your lipstick should rightly complement your saree colour. Never look made-up and always go for a subtle makeup.

12. Above all always carry a smile to enhance all that you are wearing!
