Sabyasachi Mukherjee is a a well known fashion designer from Kolkata, India. He is also one of the Associate Designer Members of Fashion Design Council of India and the youngest board member of the National Museum of Indian Cinema. A little is known about his life. Young Sabyasachi wanted to study in NIFT while parents wanted him to become an engineer. When they denied funding his education in the fashion institute, Mukherjee sold his books to fund his own education at NIFT. We all know what the result was. He became India’s one of the most popular fashion designers. A lot of people don’t know but his pet name is “Pepsi” 🙂
Sabyasachi’s design philosophy is ‘Personalized imperfection of the human hand’. Deserts, gypsies, prostitutes, antique textiles and cultural traditions of his home town, Kolkata, have been a lifelong inspiration for this designer who believes that “clothes should just be an extension of one’s intellect”. He uses unusual fabrics, texturing and detailing, ‘fusion’ of styles, ‘patch-work’ with embellishments in a vibrant colors. His creations evoke images of ancient and medieval ages. He describes his own collections as ‘an International styling with an Indian soul‟. In the designs, he tries to maintain a non commercial balance in an extremely aggressive, commercial and competitive industry. His collection is for people who prefer to walk a path less traveled and who definitely believe that slowing down is not equivalent to dropping out.
