She set men free...

...from monochrome and monotony
Sharbari Datta designs at Bengal Fashion Week, 2015

Calcutta designer Sharbari Datta, who passed away on September 17, changed menswear in India by restoring to it colours and embroidery with a flamboyance that had also disappeared. She covered men’s kurtas energetically with  embroidery, something that would appear mainly along button holes in Bengali men’s punjabis. A Sharbari Datta kurta became a fashion statement.

Appreciative of others, friendly and humble, “Sharbaridi”, as she was known to all, will be missed by the fashion fraternity and beyond.
