He is an Indian fashion designer from Kolkata and an NIFT-alumni. Designing bridal wear is his forte. As goes the news, he is a strong contender for designing the bridal outfit for Deepika Padukone when she ties the knot with actor Ranveer Singh in November this year. He sold his books to pay for the admission form of NIFT – much to his parents’ disapproval who were not eager with the idea of him taking to fashion designing. Once he graduated, he opened a workshop and started his career thereafter. The story of Sabyasachi Mukherjee is quite inspiring.
Take a guess of the design philosophy of Sabyasachi? It is unconventional – deserts, gypsies, and prostitutes to antique textiles and cultural traditions of Kolkata, therefore fantastic. That is why his Designs are unusual and out of this world. His design philosophy according to him is “personalized imperfection of the human hands”.
