Sharen Kaur's winning sari patterns

A quick photogallery of the winning design in this year's British Sari Story competition. Manchester-born Sharen Kaur, a graduate of the London College of Fashion, based her stunning new sari on a traditional English garment (the corset) and the trousers traditionally worn under dresses in coal mines in the 19th century.
