15 elegant Sabyasachi Mukherjee sarees for any occasion
Kolkata boy Sabyasachi Mukherjee, has become a legend in the couture circuit in just a span of three years and with three major collections for the annual Lakme India Fashion Week and is undoubtedly one of India’s most influential designers. His style is smart, his cuts unique and whether he plays with colors or sticks to ‘modern’ monochromes, his clothes continue to fly faster and faster off the shelves from boutiques in all the major metros.
A while ago, he was the only Indian designer to feature at the Milan Fashion Week — to cap an enormously successful presentation at the India Fashion Week ’04 called The Frog Princess. He graduated from NIFT in 1999 with three of its most coveted awards and has also been retailing at London’s posh fashion outlet Brown’s. In 2005, the world saw more of Sabyasachi with his new collections at London, Paris and on the pages of Vogue magazine.
He is the most original of Indian dress and accessory designers with an exquisite taste and stays true to his Indian roots. On his latest role as a designer for the TV show Band, Bajaa, Bride, Sabyasachi says ” I just want to dress girls who are not rich and famous”. Ironically, it is the rich and famous who queue up at his stores, wanting to add a Sabyasachi lehanga or a sari to their wardrobes. He is most sought-after for bridal wear and the only one to attain a mix of fame, critical acclaim, global recognition and commercial success in such a short span. He says that the only designer he followed was the brilliant Rohit Khosla, who died prematurely in the mid-Nineties. Ritu Kumar is the other designer he was inspired by.
