Flaunting traditional and contemporary designs

The brand new collection of ethereal saris was unveiled by Sandalwood actress
Nidhi Subbaiah who was looking gorgeous in a netted designer sari.

As soon as she launched the new brand, she took a look at the collection there. She was all praises for the vast collection in various colours and patterns and said she was quite comfortable in a Mandir sari.

“The sari, which I am wearing is light-weight, and very comfortable. I can wear it for my screen shots as well. I am hoping that I will get this sari as a gift,” she quipped.

Nidhi added, “Whenever my mom and I want to purchase a sari, Kalamandir comes first to our mind because of its amazing collection. Moreover, the price tag suits our budget.”

Later, she walked the ramp with other models showcasing the richness of the brand new collection.

Niharika, a model, was of the opinion that these saris were designed keeping the taste of youngsters in mind. Jhansi, the designer of Mandir brand, said that the designer sari is available in kanjeevarams, uppadas, banaras, paitnis, zari kotas, patolas and gaghras.

“The design is a perfect blend of tradition and contemporary fashion. I have put my 10 years’ experience in designing these saris. It is specially designed for marriage season and the price ranges from Rs 5,000 to three lakhs. Each sari is unique and woven
with purity, patience and perseverance to bring divine expression,” she

“Mandir collection is meticulously and pristinely designed and will meet the standards of today’s woman,” she said.

“One can surely feel the extraordinary touch in every piece. What sets us apart is that our fabulous Banarasi saris are from Banaras, the breathtaking Kanjeevaram saris are
from Kanjeevaram, the gossamer silk of Uppada and Gadwal saris are from Gadwal,” she added.
