A collaboration with the iconic actor celebrating her love for the saree
New delhi – Pernia’s Pop-Up Shop, India’s largest luxury fashion e-commerce platform owned by Purple Style Labs (PSL), has launched Six Yards by Madhuri Dixit, an ambitious collaboration that highlights the Bollywood megastar’s love for the saree. Drawing inspiration from her iconic saree style, it showcases a sought-after curation featuring new-age as well as culturally-rooted designs.
Celluloid dream lady, celebrated actor, and dancing queen, Madhuri Dixit has been known to make the saree a bewitching style statement. The drapes worn by her on & off the screen have shaped Indian fashion, leading to fanatic replication by millions of people worldwide, even decades after she debuted them.
In recent years, Indian fashion and textile designers have pushed the saree to the forefront with their imaginative flair. Championing it over the years, Madhuri Dixit has donned the best of six yards by leading designers like Tarun Tahiliani, Seema Gujral, Amit Aggarwal, Anita Dongre, Shyamal & Bhumika, Jayanti Reddy, Nakul Sen, Anushree Reddy and Punit Balana to name a few.
With Pernia’s Pop-Up Shop’s ensemble of both heritage weaves and modern saree renditions, Six Yards by Madhuri Dixit spotlights rich textile transitions from various Indian craft communities to drapes in luxurious chiffons, georgettes, silks, satins, and embroidered statement pieces.
Six Yards aims to generate global buzz around Madhuri’s keen eye for the silhouette. Shoppers at Pernia’s Pop-Up Shop can now take inspiration from her glamorous style expressions through handpicked drapes for festivities, weddings, and statement-making everyday wear. The collection will provide saree wardrobe choices on a scale that effortlessly combines convenience with a one-of-a-kind curation.
Central to the eminent partnership, Madhuri Dixit further added, “Six Yards is a special collaboration with Pernia’s Pop-Up Shop celebrating my love for sarees, Indian design, and exquisite craftsmanship. Sarees are definite mainstays, with never a dull moment! The exclusive curation will feature some of the country’s leading designer labels. I’m also delighted to further strengthen my ties with Purple Style Labs through this association. They have a refreshingly new outlook on India’s lifestyle and luxury industry with an astute understanding of Indian fashion consumers.”
Speaking about the collaboration, Abhishek Agarwal, founder of Purple Style Labs, said, “Sarees have always been an all-time favourite among our shoppers, and we seek to stay ahead of the curve in providing the largest selection of Indian fashion for the style-conscious individual. Madhuri’s elegant saree style has inspired fashion and film enthusiasts across generations, making her synonymous with both classic & contemporary drapes.
