"The sari has seen a surge in popularity in India, thanks to the designers' modern interpretation of the dress and Bollywood actresses who often wear it at gala events," said Ruby Shekar, who spun the idea of '50 Sari Shades of Singapore'.
"I wanted to get Indians in Singapore interested in the sari too, and thought I could do so with social media," said Shekhar, who started a Facebook page, Demure Drapes, last year to share her passion for saris and pictures of her friends in the colourful traditional attire.
"Then I thought that taking photographs of ladies in saris around Singapore would be a fun and meaningful way of celebrating Singapore's 50th birthday as well as the beauty of the sari," a newspaper quoted her as saying.

Shekhar found 50 volunteers for the sari celebration and she has shot 28 photographs till now with the rest to be completed by end of next month.
