Photographer's Note

I think saree shops are just fabulous!I took this in a predominately Muslim area, that had many saree shops. Although many women in this area wear traditional clothing outside, they often have beautiful sarees on underneath.I think there is a perception that very conservative women are not interested in fashion. This is wrong. When I was shopping for sarees, we shopped along side very conservative women, excitedly tearing through the gorgeous fabric together.
I thought this was an interesting contrast. The traditional, conservative woman in the shop and the western mannequins modelling the latest fashion on the outside.
I hope you enjoy this!
