When we started all those years ago, Harris Park was decades away from becoming the little India of today. The Indian community had yet to establish itself as one of the most progressive and fast growing groups in Australia. And the saree was not known around the country as ‘that fabulous nine-yard dress Indians wear.’
We have seen many fashions come and go, many trends explode on the scene and fade away. But the saree has only grown in stature as well as appeal.
The growing number of non-Indian clients of The Saree Shop is testimony to the fact that while it is still a formal attire, the saree is no longer reserved for people from the subcontinent.
