About Kalpana Shah- A trained classical dancer, Mumbai-based Kalpana Shah finds her quest for beauty and elegance woven into the traditional Indian drape. This is why her aim is to popularize the Sari. "Today for various reasons, women have taken to western styles of dressing. I want them to retain the Sari. To me, it's a symbol of a woman's Indian identity, and I want Indian women to continue to wear it with pride, and wear it in the most elegant and graceful way possible."
Shah's enthusiasm is infectious and with this alone, she has built up a roster of clientele over the years. She's worked with personalities in the worlds of fashion, film, business and society. As the requests for drapes to suit any occasion were varied, her creative spirit took on the challenges easily. Due to this Shah is able to take any length of cloth - from a 4-yard to a 9-yard - and make it feel as comfortable as it looks sensuous. She knows just how to work around any body type and find the right drape to flatter it.
In her experience, Shah noticed that women have the misconception that a Sari limits their mobility. But the key she finds is effective draping. This is exactly what she sets out to accomplish in 'The Whole 9 Yards'. Besides this Shah makes it possible for anyone to understand several draping styles. "I want women to know and experiment with different ways of draping a Sari." Whether it's for a ritual ceremony or a cocktail party, Shah's step-by-step recipes for Sari draping are designed to be foolproof for anyone who wants to lay claim to The Whole 9 yards.
