“I wear a sari every day. By playing with its fluid form and teaming it with my colourful western wardrobe, I have a comfortable, daily sari wearing experience. My love for the sari stems from my childhood and is an indelible connection to my culture, and my Mother.”

Nidhi Uppal’s passion for creativity in colour has influenced her approach to sari wearing. It challenges the norms of her own sari-wearing through experimental sari draping. Her experience in sari-draping covers

  • exhibitions
  • workshops
  • film
  • celebrity red carpet
  • wedding
  • personal styling

Her role as a volunteer at the Design Museum is a constant source of inspiration. It is also a continued education in all things design related. The Offbeat Sari exhibition in May 2023 at the Design Museum and The British Sari story exhibition with Bridging Arts in 2007 provided Nidhi with valuable opportunities to continue to question and develop her relationship with the sari.
