Keith Khan Digital Print Saris

Keith Khan has got an impressive CV having organised of some of the most creative events in London and abroad. Keith was one of the creative advisors involved for the Queen Diamond Jubilee Parade, this is one of the endless stream of major projects he has done. His latest enterprise was launched during

London Fashion Week, where he came up with another triumph, his collection of digital printed saris, modern and with vibrant colours for a modern woman who looks at traditions but she likes to embrace the latest trends.
The debut fashion show has been held during London Fashion Week as a part of The Bloomsbury Set Event. The venue of the Central Baptiste Church in Bloomsbury has seen fabulous models from any background dressed in these beautiful saris, which has been jazzed up with ultra modern accessories in order to bring the sari in the 21st century and detached from the common perception linked to a very traditional garment.
The beautiful models came  from the recently launched training school  Models Link where experts advice young hopefuls who would like to enter into a career of modelling. They are taught by ML how to build a portfolio and other useful tips for this industry. www.modelslinkltd.co.uk  Despite being not used to wear a particular garment like a sari, they've been brilliant and they strutted their stuff with grace and femininity.
Saris have been styled with slaves sandals in patent Melflex plastic by Vivienne Westwood + Melissa. This sandals sat perfectly in matching  colours with the printed saris. www.melissa.com.br  The soundtrack of the show was by Alex Blanco who mixed the KT Tunstall " Suddenly I See", it was just fantastic with a vibrant feeling.

An added plus was the finest leather gloves by Duecci Guanti, these gave an edge to Keith 's product.  Duecci Guanti is yet another luxury brand Keith discovered at The Bloomsbury Set Event. www.duecciguanti.it , Keith Khan has shown to the guests who attended the fashion show something that they probably did not expect to see, a modernised interpretation of  a traditional garb.
Look at the amazing colours of Keith's  collection. They are a limited edition collection with the top looking like a sport attire and with only 5 metres length elastic silk  blend that becomes more comfortable to wear.
I love the whole styling for his show and the way it has been put on stage without any cliche' . I find the prints stunning and I wouldn't be surprised if a range of scarves would be made from those patterns. Check more of Keith Khan projects at www.keithkhanassociates.com

    1. Dear Lupe, from Wikipedia the definition of sari:
      A sari, saree, or shari[note 1] is a female garment from the Indian subcontinent[1] that consists of a drape varying from five to nine yards (4.5 metres to 8 metres) in length[2] and two to four feet (60 cm to 1.20 m) in breadth[3] that is typically wrapped around the waist, with one end draped over the shoulder, baring the midriff
