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.

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.

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!
