Sabyasachi Mukherjee has got to be one of the biggest names in the design game. He’s won countless awards, designed costumes for star-studded films, and regularly dresses celebrities like Vidya Balan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. And yet, he remains somewhat of an enigma to most of the world.

When Team MissMalini had a chance to converse with the path-breaking designer at his Kala Ghoda store, of course, we simply had to do it. Here’s our attempt at taking a peek into the mind of this multi-faceted personality, who might just be one of the most intelligent celebrities we’ve come across.

1) On Upcoming Trends

Indian textiles like banarasi, khaadi, dabka ka kaam, zardosi, tila work, Kashmiri work, all of these are going to make a very big comeback.

2) On Our Colonial Hangover

3) On NDTV Good Times’ Band Baaja Bride

4) On Beauty Trends

5) On Makeup

There’s a big difference between doing makeup and being made up.
