Sabyasachi fashion trends: When Sabyasachi Mukherjee reignited old trends



Sabyasachi fashion trends, March 01: Sabyasachi Mukherjee, a well-known name in the fashion designing industry has received excellence in not only cloth making but in other beauty practices as well. There were many trends in earlier times, lost in the clouds and all thanks to Sabyasachi that these trends are back again in the mainstream trends.

Middle parted bun

There was a time when a middle-parted bun was quite famous among women to practice. Oiled hair and a middle-parted bun was something that women or girls are not completely unaware of.

One of Sabyasachi’s iconic designs has such a trend carried out by Deepika Padukone and Anushka Sharma. The fashion designer took this practice and tried it on several actors and models, thus, delivering a high-fashion hairstyle trend for women.

Kajal filled eyes with a nude lip shade

This practice was quite a thing in India’s cultural heritage but was lost somewhere when the generations went on introducing new fashion practices. But Sabyasachi seems to love the old Indian fashion styles. Kohl filled eyes along with a nude mouth styled with a small bindi is totally Sabyasachi types. This look was beautified by many models toped by Deepika Padukone.

Natural brown is more Sabyasachi thing now

Sabyasachi is not a big follower of the usual fashion techniques containing heavy pink blushers with rosy lipsticks and make-up that morphs girl into white-skinned ideals. Rather, the fashion designer uses the natural brown shade of the models to style his looks making them look even aesthetic.

His brown shade looks give more importance to the unique warmth of skin and the golden glow of the model’s skin which was the initial practice of an Indian bride in the old times.

Flowers for hair? Sabyasachi: Some more, please

Flowers were traditionally a regular practice for the brides on their D-day during the 90s and early 2000s, however, now this is rather quite underestimated style statement in current times. Sabyasachi re-introduced this trend with Rohit Bal.

From red roses to white lilies, Sabyasachi has brought this romantic hairstyle into practice again. This trend was also practised by Deepika and Anushka popularising this look during their own weddings.
