Leading Indian fashion designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee, whose brand is synonymous with luxurious Indian weddings, got castigated on social media for his recent Instagram post, forcing him to apologise.
The fashion designer has hit headlines for dressing A-listed Bollywood celebs like Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone for their weddings.
The objectionable Instagram post stated, “overdressed, caked with make-up and armoured with jewellery [women] are most likely wounded”.
The post further implied that overdressed women are in desperate need of emotional support from men. The remark apparently did not go well with netizens.Following the uproar, Sabyasachi used the same platform to issue an apology for his objectionable remarks.
In his defence, Sabyasachi said that the comment was “intended as a message of love and empathy and a call to look beyond exterior appearances”. He further explained that the comment was misconstrued, as it wasn’t “articulated correctly”.
