Sabyasachi Mukherjee, known for blending the ethnic and the modern, will bring the curtains down on the third edition of Delhi Couture Week next month. The ace designer says he will not go ‘overboard’ and keep his show ‘restrained and structured’.
‘I am privileged to be closing the Delhi Couture Week. Customarily, there is enormous pressure on most designers to go over the top during such occasions but I am going to keep my show very restrained and structured, ’Mukherjee said in a statement.
For the five-day fashion extravaganza, starting 8 August, the designer will showcase a collection titled New Moon.
‘The collection will be a blend of austere and architectural designs. It will be a very modern outlook on how India perceives Couture, with a strong emphasis on simplicity,’ the designer added. Sunil Sethi, president of Fashion Design Council of India, describes Sabyasachi as ‘one of the best couture designers’ in the country.
He added that ‘his exquisite designs, grand presentation and the collection at large, tend to create a magic that spellbinds the audience and thus he was an apt choice for the closing show. Known for his love for Indian fabrics and ethnic designs, he styled some of the known faces in Bollywood including Vidya Balan and Rani Mukerji.
