#20YearsOfSabyasachi: The Designer Hosted A Super Fancy Brunch For The Occasion

Located on the most coveted road in Alipore, Kolkata – is Sabyasachi’s home. Here, he hosted a lunch for the media to celebrate the completion of 20 years of his eponymous label.
I shot with him in New York 11 years ago, when he kindly helped me carry our bulky equipment! Something he did again when our crew ran into him on the cobbled streets of Montmartre in Paris while he was shooting with Aishwarya Rai for a magazine.

Sabyasachi is enigmatic and his clothes and jewellery have a larger than life persona but he is also someone who is extremely grounded, focused and generous. He has a brilliant mind – that is creative, innovative with a strong bent towards the economics of it all.

THE DÉCOR

The public area of his home in a as elaborate and detailed as his store and the private area have a more minimalist décor. The carpeted staircase and the walls add the requisite warmth and layering!

THE FOOD

One of the most popular confectioners in the city Kookie Jar-had catered the food that included lots of salads, grilled meats and vegetables, bruschetta and the quintessential Bengali fried fish served in a paper cone! The dessert had everyone going for a second helping.

Sabya is also someone who enjoys a cold coffee with ice cream at a 3 am shoot! He is a foodie and took me for one of  my favourite Gujarati meals at The House of MG in Ahemdabad.

THE GAMES

There were two rounds of Tambola and the prizes that included Art Works by Artists supported by The Sabyasachi Art Foundation and Shawls/Duppatas/Saris/Chand Balas from his brand and some from the Sabyasachi Curiosity, Art and Antiquity project!

THE WARDROBE

The men wore Kurta Pyjamas with or without a bandi. Some of India’s most renowned fashion and lifestyle editors and stylists wore a mix of Saris/Kaftans/Kimonos/day dresses/maxis! We loved the accessory details.

Sabya’s clothes and his persona resonate with most women because he has a wonderful relationship with all the women in his life – his mother, his sister and his college friends who continue to be his besties!
