WHAT IS THE SELFIE SAREE?
Selfie Saree is just like your any other saree. As amateurs, we often find a 5.5 meter sari a little difficult to understand. The difficulty arises with questions like;
- Where to begin?
- Which side to tuck?
- How to pleat?
- How to drape?
It is also time consuming to figure out which way to drape and which way to pleat. But with the Selfie Saree, you are free from these panics!

THE BRAIN BEHIND THE SELFIE SAREE
Meet Ms Pallavi Naidu!
I graduated from National Institute of Fashion Technology, an acronym for NIFT, at Hyderabad in the year 2011. Soon after, I worked with a design team of renowned designers in Mumbai designing exquisite embroidery details. With zeal to be diversified and distinct, I resigned from my job to initiate my own label in the year 2012.
Pallavi Naidu Designs (PND) is about creative ideas that are wearable and affordable, which are made for a cause, a reason or as an inspiration. The label works on clothing concepts which marries the art of design and the technology of science. Having built the clientele, PND participated in the Bangalore Fashion Week, for Winter-Festive 2013 where I showcased a collection on the usage of denim fabric in Indian Wear. This concept was well received after which we, as PND, entered online portals like indianroots.in etc .
Risks and challenges
Production related :
We will be manufacturing these sarees at Bangalore .These sarees are digitally printed and are made in bulk,using industrial machinery and synthetic dyes. The fabrics are of good quality and pass through basic testing parameters . As this is the first time ever that we are making sarees that come in 12 sizes there could be minor manual errors in shipping sizes or understanding right sizes according to your height and bust size.In such cases we can have the sarees exchanged to the preferred size once we receive the previously sent parcels back. We are using Bangalore as our distribution and quality fulfilment hub before shipping finally to end consumers( This should solve most of the issues). As for international shipping we will be informing you about the shipment provider details before we ship. If you prefer to use any other delivery service there will be excess charges , that you may have to incur.
