Robert Notman had just left a barbecue and was standing in a pub with friends when his sarong
suddenly burst into flames.
According to anthropological studies, the sarong
was first worn by Cambodian women during the five-centuries long Funan era, which ended in 550AD.
The first capsules came off the line in 2012, shortly after Sarong
's equipment installation.
Their vast collection features cotton printed dresses, ethnic kurtis for both men and women in distinctive style and color, casual shirts, long jackets, sarongs
, kaftans and scarves along with bags and other accessories.
De Mel says, "Wearing a LOVI[TM] sarong
is an authentic, bold statement about cultural identity.
Ballet Philippines, in partnership with the province of Albay, is presenting Sarong
Banggi, a three-day show by the premier dance company where classic Filipino folk songs from all over the Philippines are reimagined through a narrative that could bring any noontime telenovela today on its knees.
With the funds raised from the charity sing-a-long campaign of Sarong
Boses, Benita was provided with an airplane ticket and recently flew back to her home country.
That also seemed to be an inside bet between the male participants of the show." Wearing this so called ' sarong
wrap dress' and doing the dhak- dhak item number, Pam might have managed to get the TRPs soaring a little, but with Madhuri's orange sari image being almost embedded in collective memory, she at best could cut a Paharganj version, performed by bar girls, of the Indian dancing queen.
"David Beckham may have been ridiculed for wearing a sarong
but Scottish kilts are long accepted as suitable attire for men north of the border, while the Greek and Roman military tunics were the height of masculinity."
T-shirts, khanga (women's sarong
skirts) and other items were "branded" and distributed at community mobilization events.
PS: We can't help but wonder if the strappy vest look will become as popular as the sarong
Furthermore, for the skirt, known as a "sarong
", people wrap a large sheet of fabric around the waist.
