The OMG Offbeat Saris from Dia Designer

May 22, 2012 - by Preeti

I was surfing around when I came across Dia, a lengha sari design company. I don't even know who makes Dia and what Dia is, but seriously these lengha-saris are off the hook.

You heard me ladies, these are not saris nor lenghas, they are lengha-saris.

And they are ...





I would say if there ever was an offbeat, funky sari, THIS would be it.

At first I was going to feature just one of the lengha-saris but in the end, I have to feature the entire offbeat Dia collection. You can wear these fusion outfits for a mehndi or sangeet. Imagine how gorgeous you would look!

I just wish you could buy them in more sizes. Ladies who wear size 6 or 8...lucky ducks!
