NEW YORK, NEW YORK, August 30, 2017 (Lassi With Lavina by Lavina Melwani): You've heard of Versace, St. Laurent and Prada - now here comes Temple Fashion! If you can dress for social events, then why not for God? When it's Ganesh Chathurthi, the nine-day festival dedicated to that most beloved of Gods, Ganesha, people go all out to look their best. They buy special dresses, bring out their jewels and decorate their hair with jasmine flowers. In India it's easy enough to do that, but here in New York, Ganesha devotees pull out all the stops and go the whole nine yards. In honor of Ganesha I wore a new embroidered outfit from India and decided to take pictures of all the young devotees who had come dressed in multicolored silk outfits for this special occasion. Talk of fashion statements!
