As someone who travels for work, I am frequently surprised when I visit other countries and see women dawning sarees, or wearing shalwar kameezes to the office, or a lehenga to a party. I once went to a wedding where I met a woman who bought her lehenga from Dubai. This has made me realize that South Asian clothing is probably more universal than I thought. The popularity of Bollywood movies, gorgeous designs, and modesty are appealing to several cultures.
