Lots of blue, lines and plastic

With pinks and silvers thrown in for extra points. 
The bead work on this kurta is coming off now but it still looks impressive. 
The interesting grid like structure above alongside wavy sequined lines 
shows great choice in colour. and shape.
The inside of the neckline shows an
interesting structure of thin plastic thread that is transparent and still visible.Photobucket 
The slit eye like shape, clearly a shape referenced 
in Asia's own art and cultural heritage, 
an example would be the book cover of
The triumph of modernism: India's artists and the avant-garde, 1922-1947 by
Partha Mitter,
which shows a painting that uses the idea of elongated eyes.
