#VenusWilliams and #Inga wearing Ritu Kumar sarees for the Raptor’s Ball in #Bengaluru

Venus and Inga chosen saris which were flattering to their skin tones, rich in colours and have a heritage of embroidery techniques used for embellishment. The pioneer women from the sports world add a lot of glamour to the fusion of indian and international sensibilities."

Venus sports a vibrant yellow sari in georgette with a gold thread embroidery on the border. The simplicity of the sari is enhanced by the red blouse which is embroidered in concentric circles and edged with ghungroos to give a folk look to the ensemble.

Inga is dressed in a black cocktail net sari adorned with sequined ari embroidery. The highlight of the sari is the intricate contrasting blouse in red with all over zardozi embroidery. The minimalistic approach to this ensemble makes it more contemporary.
