Fashion Film “Osariya” A Fashion Film by Calvin Chinthaka.

4 Mins - Sri Lanka

“The Kandyan sari, also known as Osariya, is the national garment of many colours and textures worn by Sri Lankan women. It is a long-lasting tradition of modesty and fashion which is now facing the influence of modern social identity.

The Osariya is a two-piece attire, with one blouse that covers the midriff and is tucked into the waist. A key distinguishing feature of this style is that the saree is not pleated at the waist, but rather pleated at the shoulders. In comparison to the traditional saree draping style.

It is a blend of tradition and style; a simple cloth of six yards with a width of three feet with origins traced to the Kandyan Kingdom.

“Osariya” will be screening at LCF's special screening at the Aesthetica film festival on 10th Nov 2019    https://www.asff.co.uk
