Celebrated designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee celebrated Indian craftsmanship and brought Natasha’s vision to bring the six meters of pure elegance to life on the red carpet.
For the 2022 Met Gala, themed ‘In America: An Anthology of Fashion’, Natasha Poonawalla’s vision was to interpret the ‘Gilded Glamour’ dress code with an Indian look that reveled in its multiculturalism and authenticity.
Natasha wore a hand-forged metal bustier from Schiaparelli, paired with a custom Sabyasachi couture saree and trail. Delighted to have the saree on the red carpet, Sabyasachi took to Instagram and shared, “For me, the saree is a truly unique and versatile piece of clothing that holds its identity even as it transcends borders and geographies. When I was a young fashion student , I often wondered when I would see the saree at major global fashion events like the Met Gala.(sic)”
Sabyasachi contributed to Natasha’s vision by celebrating Indian craftsmanship with a gold-plated printed tulle saree and trail embroidered with silk floss and embellished with slanted beads, semi-precious stones, crystals, sequins and appliqué printed velvet.
The tulle saree styled by Anaita Shroff Adajania had a long trail embroidered with silk floss. The beautiful saree was draped by the talented and Bollywood’s favorite drapery artist Dolly Jain who has draped stars including Katrina Kaif, Alia Bhatt etc.
The jewelry decorated by Poonawalla looked like a diva and was a collection of custom pieces from Sabyasachi Fine Jewelery and limited edition collectibles from Sabyasachi’s Curiosity Art & Antiquity Project, crafted using traditional techniques with precious and semi-precious stones.
The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute fundraiser took place on May 2 in New York and saw “Gold” play an integral part in most ensembles. Among those in attendance, we saw celebrities such as Cardi B, Ariana DeBose, Camila Mendes, Sara Sampaio, Isabelle Boemeke, Jeremy Scott, Nichapat Suphap, Rachel Brosnahan, Louisa Jacobson, Marcus Samuelsson, and Michaela Jaé Rodriguez to name a few.
