Draping With Finesse

The Muslin’s Boishakh/Eid ul Fitr 2023 collection offers up sheer elegance this festival season

By MWB Desk

Boishakh coincides with Ramadan this year, so if you’re going to ring in the Bengali New Year with an iftar hang out, why not add a twist to the outfit as well
Pastels are always popular, but with the weather warming up, this beautiful ice-cream pink Banarasi silk number is a soothing sight for the eyes. We’ve paired it with a gold blouse to match the intricate gold embroidery, but you can take it from daytime to evening wear by adding a pop of a brighter colour and zhuzhing up the eye makeup
Another breezy Banarasi in a mouth-watering shade is this delightful mint sari. The matching blouse makes it perfect for the daytime dawat, but this is a shade that can transition seamlessly into evening wear with a quick makeup refresh
The classic kantha stitch embroidery gets a stylish update in these bright and festive saris. Bold florals bloom against a bright fuschia backdrop, while delicate paisleys play against a sophisticated ivory
Black or white, day or night, organic handloom is timeless. The signature muslin in an icy pastel shade, and a very contemporary take on stark black jamdani, whichever you pick, the result is very regal
Cooler shades prevail in the heat, and The Muslin brings you options in a variety of textiles. The periwinkle endi silk is edged with silvery stonework for the perfect party look, while the lightness of the emerald toned muslin is nicely balanced with a heavy embroidered border
