Watch: a step-by-step guide to wearing a sari
While we don't subscribe to fashion designer Sabhyasachi's opinion that Indian women who don't know how to put on a sari should be ashamed of themselves (yes, he did say it), there have been times when wearing a sari would have been nice, fun, cool, different or, indeed, necessary. Except that putting the things on - if you don't know how - has proved to be a matter of much frustration, confusion and, on at least one occasion, hysterical sobbing. But, hopefully, that ends now.
