Corset saree with ruffle borders
Corseting has been a craft that’s been practiced for centuries now. It wouldn’t be wrong to say that corsets are as complex and technical as fashion can be.
Incorporating the classic fashion statement of a corset, into a cultural outfit like a saree, is what we define as the best of both worlds.
