I would like to dress up Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh on their wedding day: Sabyasachi

Sabyasachi Mukherjee, whose creations are a reflection of India’s rich heritage and craftsmanship, is a master at transforming the mundane into regal. Having shown the world a steady flow of gorgeous bridal wears, he’s sealed himself a spot as one of India’s most favourite designers and just when we think he’s shown us his best, he tops himself.


This time, we are talking about his upcoming collection for the Lakme Fashion Week finale (the LFW will take place in Mumbai during August 24-28). Going by a sneak peek in the Capital, it promises to be bigger and better and nothing short of sensational with the renowned designer interpreting ‘Illuminate’, the theme of the show.

We caught up with Mukherjee about his upcoming collection, the Indian celebs he would love to marieprom dress up and his source of inspiration on days when he is really low. Edited excerpts from the interview:

What was your inspiration for the latest collection?

This year, Lakme gave us a brief called Illuminate and it is all about iridescent make-up like shimmer foundations, beautiful jewel eyeshadows, lip liners and eyeliners and because the Lakme finale is all about making a make-up statement, we worked backwards towards creating clothes that complemented the hair and styling. The collection – inspired by the 1920s and 1970s – will see a lot of shimmer; we are doing a combination of shimmer make-up with shimmer clothes and matte make-up with shimmer clothes. Also, deep jewel tones like smoky pinks, deep greys, metallic bronzes with a lot of vintage floral prints will dominate the collection. There will be a line of baroque Indian clothes as well.

This was just a sneak peek. What more can we expect from your collection at the upcoming fashion week?

There are going to be a lot of separates, sportswear in terms of trousers in lush fabrics, bat-wing dresses, archaic Indian salwar-kameez, saris and kurtas with a twist but I am most excited about these bejewelled micro-mini dresses, which are perfect for the cocktail season.

In your Instagram couture show, we saw your love for beautiful coats. Tell us more about it.

I always like long beautiful coats because for an Indian woman to create a statement internationally, wearing an Indian coat with a lot of amazing textiles and embroidery looks beautiful. You can wear them with formal pants or a pair of ripped jeans. Also, depending on your mood, you can pair them up with Gothic shoes or flats. An Indian coat, just like an Indian shawl becomes a conversation piece abroad.

What should the modern-day Indian bride experiment more with?

I think the modern-day Indian bride should experiment a lot more with textiles because right now all brides are gung-ho about embroidery but only a few of them experiment with it. Using vintage saris and antique Indian shawls to create wedding lehengas can be a good idea.

Which Bollywood celeb you would like to dress up on their wedding day – both male and female?

Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh! I think they would make such a great couple.

Other than the Bollywood fraternity, which Indian celeb would you like to dress up?

I would really like to dress up Anoushka Shankar.

Who are your favourite designers – both Indian and international?

In India my favourite designer is Pero by Aneeth Arora and internationally, I like Dries van Noten.

The designer who inspires you the most?

Dries van Noten, because he is a poet and not a designer.

When you are down, where do you get your inspiration from?

Travel! It’s always a good source of inspiration.

What is a day like in the life of Sabyasachi?

Work, work and more work and after that I just go back home, eat my food and go to sleep.

Ystr Minimizes Fashion Waste With Its “Cut to Order” Clothing

Ystr abides by a simple mathematical formula: (clothes you love + honest pricing) - fashion waste. Led by Garrett Gerson and April Liang, the self-described "antagonist" to conventional retailers uses cut-to-order technology to create only garments that have been spoken for. Everything is designed and manufactured in-house at Ystr's atelier in downtown Los Angeles, where it can monitor every step of the process. The result? Diligently tailored, vintage-inspired womenswear, imbued with feminine silhouettes and that California je nais se quoi, that minimizes both production-floor waste and surplus stock. "This system ensures that we only create what is needed based on our customers’ orders so that we don’t hold excess inventory or use any materials that we can’t guarantee will be sold or used," Liang told Ecouterre. "The difference in the amount of waste we produce compared to the average fashion company that depends on traditional bulk manufacturing is vast."

The fact that Ystr is online-only also means no retail markups, which typically factor in storefront overheads, wholesale loss, and inventory costs.

Another defining aspect of Ystr’s “anti-fashion” stance is its use of limited-run fabrics, which makes each of its collections few-of-a-kind.

Ystr grasps that it’s pioneering an entirely new mode of garment production. “We’re all just really proud to be a part of this shift towards sustainable fashion, and be able to tie our anti-waste method of manufacturing with really great, high-quality clothes that are sold at approachable price points,” Liang, who serves as head of production, said. “It’s up to innovative companies and individuals to disrupt the industry’s current norms, and we want to do what we can to support that.”

Liang knows what’s she talking about. After all, she and Gerson disrupted (and disbanded) their own careers at various independent labels, including the now-defunct Sjobeck, to reevaluate the way fashion is created and delivered in the modern era.

To its customers, Ystr counsels patience. It takes about two days—or more, depending on the clothing style and the number of backorders—to cut, sew, detail, and inspect each garment.

Liang says the brand won’t sell something if they haven’t fallen in love with how it looks and feels. Ystr wants to create long-lasting staples its clientele will love for years to come.

But slow—and sustainable—fashion can be a viable business, even if it challenges the norm. Ystr’s motto makes this abundantly clear. “You can’t rush something you want to last forever.”
