This pujo, many organisers are bringing in the prima donna fashion conscious Durga. Ditching their traditional attire, many idols will display sarees, stitched by well-known fashion designers of the city. Even arch villain, Mahisasura, will get a makeover. 

Some sarees will have a sequined look, some will have a rustic appeal with brocade work. The embroidery has been done with circular metal and beaded work. Sharbari Datta will be designing the idol’s saree at Lala Bagan Sarbojanin Durga Puja, while Agnimitra Paul is making a designer saree for the idol at Santosh Mitra Square.
