As the vibrant Festival of Lights illuminates the city, The Gardens Mall transforms into a mesmerising spectacle, celebrating the rich tapestry of traditions and the exquisite artistry of the saree. This year’s Kolam, a traditional decorative pattern, takes center stage with an awe-inspiring 600 square feet design inspired by the intricate beauty of sarees.
Beneath a captivating pavilion, a rotating mannequin draped in a stunning embroidered saree gracefully sits atop the Kolam, surrounded by displays of weaving looms, threads, and jewelery, offering a glimpse into the artistry behind saree creation.
The mall is committed to fostering a deeper appreciation for the intricate craftsmanship and cultural significance of sarees. Informational signages adorn the Kolam, providing insights into the history and significance of sarees, while engaging saree-draping workshops invite visitors to learn the art of transforming yards of fabric into elegant ensembles.
As weekends arrive, the mall comes alive with captivating music and dance performances, transporting visitors to the heart of the Festival of Lights celebrations. Witness the graceful movements of Kathak dancers, the expressive extensions of Bharatanatyam performers, and the vibrant energy of Garba dancers, all set against the backdrop of the dazzling Kolam.
