The story of the frog princess was beautifully narrated on the ramp by fashion designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee. No wonder, Albert Morris of Brown, UK, made it a point to attend the post-show conference at the Grand.

Last year Mukherjee had de-glamorised the models with plain Jane shoes and spectacles and this time he employed smudged up makeup, oversized Kolhapuri chappals and jootis. The show drew a packed house with models casually walking the ramp munching on chocolates and bread.

"With soothing violin notes in the background, the show had a very avant-garde feel to it," remarked Mumbai socialite Sheetal Mafatlal, sporting a Dolce and Gabbana top and jeans. And what makes Mukherjee’s collection comprising vegetable-dyed outfits with a second-hand feel to them a hit with everyone? "The attitude. Sabyasachi looks within for inspiration," said jewellery designer and restaurateur Queenie Dhody.

Affirmed Natasha Nanda, flaunting her pink Christian Dior bag, "The show was simply fantastic."

A striking feature was the manner in which Mukherjee presented the clothes one on top of other. "One has to pinch out the separates to wear them individually. The look this year is not about what you wear but how you put it together," said the designer.

No wonder, his jackets in velvet, cotton, lace and organza bowled over Pakistani journalist Andaleeb Rana, sporting a Mukherjee outfit with a plunging neckline. "He has outdone himself with this Jane Austen-inspired collection," she added.
