Italy may be the fashion capital of the world, but there’s no denying that when it comes to vintage, the world looks proudly to India which has a rich loom heritage. And over all these decades and centuries, especially the last 75 years of independence, Indian fashion has seen itself inhabited only by something prettier, every day. Yet the country has never let go of its vintage which is reflected even in the modern designs of India.
Speaking of current fashion, every Indian bride’s dream is to walk to her mandap in a designer lehenga. And ask them which fashion designer they want to wear; young brides-to-be will quickly say the name of fashion designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee’s ace. Her label, ‘Sabyasachi’, is the one that resonates the most with Indian brides who want to wear the traditional red colored lehenga with a modern twist while still keeping the vintage factor in all its glamour.
From Anushka Sharma’s bridal attire to Deepika Padukone, Katrina Kaif and many other celebrities have been legitimate wives of Sabyasachi. Not only them, but their respective grooms are also Sabyasachi grooms. But before we doll up India’s beautiful brides, here’s a bit about how Sabyasachi became “the” Sabyasachi of the fashion world.

In fact apart from the movies, many would also remember Sabyasachi from a TV show called “Band Baaja Bride” where the bride would get a custom bridal outfit by his couture in which Sabya himself would sit with the bride to discuss her outfit.
