Are Mumbai's women cops ready for a makeover?

Mumbai police chief Rakesh Maria announced that policewomen, will be permitted to wear sarees instead of the shirt-trouser uniform. Taking a cue, we invited 3 city designers to share stylised versions of the saree uniform

This is a cotton saree in khaki and beige with a shirt blouse and epaulets. The shirt blouse can have pockets, medals, etc. This saree design comes with a belt for easy movement.

Designer Shruti Sancheti

The saree is teamed with a shirt that is tucked in — the pallu of the saree is pleated and held in place on the shoulder through the epaulet — this makes it easy to handle.

Designer Neeta Lulla

This includes a khaki polyester viscose shirt, a cotton pre-pleated and pre-stitched skirt with an attached pallu that goes through the shoulder flap. This works in terms of comfort.
