Sabyasachi displays his collection
Mumbai, Mar 31 (UNI) A calm and quietness permeates through Sabyasachi's new resort collection as fashion world settles into a cleaner fresher mood at Lakme Fashion Week underway here.
Painstakingly tedious processes of subtle texturing, laborious means of mud, obsolete techniques of embroidery, classic couture construction methods and controlled volume in silhouettes inject an air of old world charm into this otherwise modern collection.
''In an era of mass production, this collection is all about slowing down. It is not about being old fashioned nor it is about dropping out. It is about being quietly assertive and being able to choose a less chaotic and perhaps better way of life,'' the National Institute of Fashion Technology (NIFT) graduate said.
Winner of three major awards, Sabyasachi won the Femina British Council's most outstanding young designer of India award which took him to London in 2001 for an internship with Georgina Von Etzdorf, a designer based in Salisbury.
After returning home in 2002, his debut collection at the Lakme Fashion Week earned him reviews by the national and international media.
Several national and international awards later, Asia Inc., a Singapore-based business magazine, also voted him as one of the ten most influential Indians in Asia alongside Aishwarya Rai, Priyanka Gandhi and Sabir Bhatia.
His spring summer 06 Collection, purchased by Browns and Selfridges in London, has been featured in the UK Vogue hot list and has been requested for showcasing it at the prestigious Oxford University annual black tie charity Fashion Show.
