Having graduated from NIFT Kolkata in 1999, Sabyasachi Mukherjee focused on learning the intricacies of fashion industry in Kolkata. He won Ritu Kumar Award for Excellence in Design and Femina British Council Most Outstanding Young Designer of India Award.
He went to London for internship with Georgina Etzdorf, an eclectic designer based in Salisbury. Returning home with edgier ideas Sabyasachi started retailing at all major stores in India. In 2002 Sabyasachi participated at the LIFW where his debut collection earned him rave reviews from the national and international press.
Spring of 2003 Sabyasachi made his international mark by bagging the grand winner award at the Mercedes New Asia fashion Week in Singapore. Sabyasachi now aspires to get a corporate tie-up to promote his brand outside his country.
For LIFW, this year, Sabyasachi plans to churn out a collection called "Kora" which is a symbolism of the triumph of the human spirit. Retro details, soft silhouettes and a total transition from colours to white and whiter shades of pale form the backbone of this collection, which silently protest the futility of man made calamities. Over the top embroidery and opulence will give way to a cleaner and soulful look, which is almost spiritual and ethereal.
