Designing for expecting mothers is not a new trend, especially for western wear. But, when Hyderabad-based designer Gaurang Shah made the visibly pregnant super model Carol Gracias wear this beautiful Green saree with gold embroidery sporting a mid-length blouse with slits on the side and 3/4th sleeves accentuated with flares – that are so much in fashion this year – in the same two shades of violet and pink as is the border, at the on-going Lakme Fashion week, it did grab the eyeballs.
Saree is by far the best dress that can be worn by expecting mothers in India, but can get fussy and uncomfortable at times. However, despite the casual wear that is available in plus sizes for the pregnant ladies; sporting a saree for special occasions does become mandatory for Indian women, With a little bit of design sensibilities, the mothers-to-be can be comfortable, yet look fashionable.
Evidently Carol looked tall and gracious with the baby bump as she walked the runway for Gaurang on Thursday. The designer posted the pictures of the model on his Instagram.
