Designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee is the gold standard when it comes to bridal wear. While those with deep enough pockets manage to snag his creation for their D-day (or go onto Band Baajaa Bride) others resort to tailors in Chandini Chowk for a designer rip-off of his runway creations. 

But it looks like the designer may just be adding a bit more risqué to his very ornate designs. In a recent interview with Architectural Digest, the designer admitted to straying away from the aesthetics of his previous collections such as Bater and Varanasi. "In fashion, you have to reinvent yourself every three to five years. You need to be fresh. Right now, I’ve become tired of gaunt faces and stick-thin models. I’m obsessed by boobs!" he said. 

Sexist much? While fashion frat has mostly remained silent on the comment, a few are voicing the obvious objectification of women's bodies in his comment.  

The designer's cult status and the fact that his bridal wear is not really affordable may just be the reason why the opinionated Twitterati is silent on the issue. So, no Nike-burning type of situation here.    

Interestingly, the Mukherjee also commented in the same interview, “I don’t believe in catwalk shows anymore. Instagram is so powerful, 65 per cent of my business originates from there.” Well, we suggest he amend his sexist trend-watching if he wants to use social media as the catwalk. Earlier this year, he had tried to sari-shame Indian woman by saying, "I think, if you tell me that you do not know how to wear a sari, I would say shame on you. It’s a part of your culture, you need to stand up for it." The comment would have been a bit less controversial, had he tried to shame the men of India for trading the traditional dhoti for western wear too.
