When you read his name Sabayasachi Mukherjee, wedding bells start ringing in your ears. India’s go-to wedding couturier, Sabya is known for his rich and royal bridal lehengas. And correct us if we are wrong, but it is every girl’s dream to wear an outfit under his label on her special day. He has completed about 18 years in the fashion industry and we can vouch for the fact that the fashion brigade would be incomplete without this modest designer. We say modest, because even though he is one of the nation’s finest designers, he still lives in a rented 1 BHK apartment in Kolkatta. He says it’s important for a fashion designer to stay detached from the exuberance of his work to remain successful.
On his 43rd birthday, we give you a list of six Bollywood divas who looked absolutely stunning in magnificent Sabyasachi outfits and hope that the mastermind continues to inspire us with his craftsmanship.
DP and Sabyasachi have come together several times for various occasions, be it the IIFA Awards or at the Lakme Fashion Week. Whenever they get together, a beautiful and grand tale gets woven. However, in the recent photoshoot of the diva for the cover of Vogue magazine’s November issue, DP looks drop-dead gorgeous. She is wearing Sabyasachi’s designs in all the pictures and words wouldn’t do justice for the outcome. Have a look yourself.
Well, Bebo has worn the label quite a few times, but the one time that needs to be mentioned is the time she walked the Lakme Fashion Week runway as the showstopper for Sabyasachi; all this while she was pregnant. And it goes without saying that she looked every bit of the Begum that she is.
Vidya Balan and Sabyasachi are names that are often taken in the same breath. We wouldn’t be wrong in saying that Vidya was the one who began wearing Sabya’s breathtakingly beautiful saris and introduced the common world to his work.
The eternal beauty wore a traditional silk sari with an embellished border by Sabyasachi for last year’s Karva Chauth celebrations. She looked like the perfect “biwi”.
Asin married beau Rahul Sharma last year. And for the Hindu wedding she adorned a gold and maroon Sabyasachi lehenga. One look at her and you will know why we are craving a Sabya lehenga for our special day.
The sexy bong recently married actor Karan Singh Grover in a traditional ceremony. Bips wore a heavy gold and red lehenga exclusively designed for her by the reputed designer. Doesn’t she look stunning in this ethnic avatar?
Sabya’s design philosophy is “personalized imperfection of the human hand” which in itself speaks a thousand words of his immaculate work. We wish the designer a very happy birthday.
