This year’s India Society Ball looked to be one of the best that Cambridge has ever seen. Featuring belly dancing, Bollywood music, free massages, henna tattoos and free-flowing alcohol, it was the outfits themselves that were the highlight of the night. The event gave Indians and non-Indians alike the opportunity to dress in their best saris, churidars and sherwanis, making the ball a colourful and culturally-rich event for fashion.
