Sabyasachi Mukherjee completed his 10+2 from St. Xavier College. He wanted to do graduation from NIFT (National Institute in Fashion Technology) but his parents wanted him to become an engineer. They were reluctant of his choice as they couldn’t understand how a course of cloth designing can give him a safe and secure career. When his parents refused to pay his admission fee for NIFT, he sold all his books to pay for it.

Sabyasachi’s design philosophy is ‘Personalized imperfection of the human hand’. Taking inspiration from his hometown Kolkata and also picking up something from wherever he visited, he believes that “clothes should just be an extension of one’s intellect”. He does a lot of research on fabrics, textures and detailing before creating any dress. He describes his own collections as ‘an International styling with an Indian soul’. His collection is for people who prefer to walk a path less traveled.
