Sabyasachi’s latest collection isn’t for richie rich brides. The designer has unveiled a collection of uniforms, using “Ajrakh”, a unique form of block printing commonly seen in traditional Rajasthan designs, as part of a project that aims to empower young girls in Jaisalmer.
Sabyasachi Mukherjee is easily one of the country’s most prominent fashion and jewellery designers. Having designed the wedding outfits of some of the biggest names in Bollywood, such as Priyanka Chopra, Deepika Padukone, and Anushka Sharma, the 46-year-old has made a name for himself among the country’s elite. However, the designer has recently proved that he is equally committed to fashion for a cause. According to a recent post on Instagram, Sabyasachi’s latest collection won’t cater to the rich and famous, but to school children.
