Sabya’s dual Kodak moment

Calcutta, Feb. 23: Calcutta had its own Kodak moment at the 81st Annual Academy Awards. Twice. And they are both accredited to city’s design doyen Sabyasachi Mukherjee.

While all eyes were on A.R. Rahman as he accepted his two Oscars for the night for best original score and best original song, Sabya was in seventh heaven.

As a proud Indian, he witnessed a historic moment. But for Sabya, the occasion was doubly special. The black sherwani that Rahman wore was his Bridal Sutra design.

“This has been my best birthday ever. I was very keen that Rahman wear something Indian and I had told his stylist that if it is not mine it doesn’t matter, it has to be Indian.

“He is such a genius that he doesn’t need to conform to other people’s clothes. The world needs to conform to his kind of music,” Sabya told The Telegraph. The designer was also proud of his second Oscar creation worn by Rahman’s wife Saira. “I was very happy that she wore it exactly the way it was meant to be worn. She didn’t feel pressurised to change her style.”
