The fight against breast cancer unites women around the world every October. But if you’re an Indian woman, you have all the more reason to show your support this Breast Cancer Awareness Month: Statistics show that over the next few years, a breast cancer epidemic in India is going to put our mothers, sisters and female friends and loved ones at a much higher risk for this tragic disease. Join Luxemi in spreading breast cancer awareness by rocking your pink saree this month.
About 90,000 Indian women die from breast cancer each year, making it the leading causes of death for women in the country’s urban areas. And by 2020, the World Health Organization says 1 in 8 Indian women will develop breast cancer in her lifetime.
With numbers like that, it’s no wonder that celebrities like Sonam Kapoor and major organizations like the Forum For Breast Cancer Protection are stepping in to teach the public about early detection strategies. If you haven’t seen the NGO’s short film, “We Can Defeat Breast Cancer,” you should definitely watch it now: it shows how to give yourself a breast exam and provides a ton of useful information about breast cancer prevention.
Wearing pink is one of the most symbolic ways to show your support for the fight against breast cancer. Don’t have a pink saree in your closet? You’ll embody the breast cancer pink ribbon in our “Tied with a Bow” Georgette Saree, which has a rosy pink hue and delicate gold ribbon borders. To make a more vibrant display of your support, we’re loving the details and punchy vibe of this Barbie Pink Saree with Crystals. And if you prefer softer pinks, Luxemi has two sarees made for you: this artsy Peach and Pink Ombré Bollywood Saree with Sequins and this Georgette Saree with Beaded Waves.
To complete your pink look, Luxemi loves this regal Victorian Pendant Set with Pink Stones. And this Victorian Pink Tourmaline Set is one of our favorite pieces in Luxemi’s accessory collection. Between its chic, 1960s inspired brooches and intriguing hanging earrings, this set is the epitome of classic femininity.
Luxemi loves fashion with a social conscience. Have you rocked your pink saree this month? When you do, send us a photo and we’ll feature your look on Facebook!
