Sabyasachi's Hipster Collection {India Couture Week 2014}

July 16, 2014 - by Preeti

This evening, Sabyasachi kicked off the India Couture Week with an ode to being hipster.

A vintage, hipster Indian collection. If anyone can take Indian fashion and blend into an array of delight and forward-thinking, it is Mr. Sabyasachi. Remember his steampunk Indian collection? And gorgeous ladies Aishwarya Rai and Sonam Kapoor donning his outfits? How badass is this man?

This year's look was a flashback to the days of comfort travel on trains. The stage was set with several train cars with models acting as passengers. It was an old world charm meets hipster charm.

Tulles, embellished poplin kurtas, Katha reinforced banarasi bandghalas, and plenty of crystals formed these exquisite outfits.

Thanks to fine art photographer Nitin Patel, The Big Fat Indian Wedding has exclusive behind-the-scenes access to all those beautiful saris, kurtas, ghararas, lehengas, and sherwanis.

Actress Rani Mukerji wasn't the runway showstopper but she did sport a Sabyasachi sari in black and white.
