New York Fashion Week: Sabyasachi’s talking bout a revolution

Banner

Sabyasachi showed his S/S 2008 collection in New York last night to a crowd mixed with New York City-based Indian socialites, important fashion journalists like Laird Borrelli-Persson of Style.com and Meredith Melling-Burke of Vogue, and other curious onlookers eager to see what the "Hermes of India" would come up with this season.

As Laird told me before the show after she had taken a quick pre-show sneak peek backstage, it was "classic Sabya".

SymbolHe sent out rich Indian fabrics in a deep "revolutionary" colour palette of burnt orange, forest green and indian khaki, cut in classic (sometimes very voluminous) Western silhouettes. Revolutionary symbols from Russia, Cuba and elsewhere accented the clothes, which strummed along to Tracy Chapman and perhaps a deeper message of Sabyasachi’s plans of bringing a little bit of India to the global fashion.
