Sabyasachi Slammed Indian Women Who Can’t Wear Saree. Twitter Taught Him A Perfect Lesson

Sabyasachi is one of the most popular fashion designers of the present times and be it Deepika’s ethnic outfits or Anushka’s wedding dresses, he has mesmerised us all with his amazing work. In fact when Deepika was asked as to which designer’s dress she would wear in her wedding, she named Sabyasachi. People are going gaga over his sense of fashion and style and he has always lived up to our expectations.


The ace designer is once again in news but this time, it’s for all wrong reasons. On Saturday, he slammed Indian women, especially younger generation, who don’t know how to drape a saree and prefer western clothes.

Here’s what he said at Harvard India Conference,

“I think, if you tell me that you do not know how to wear a saree, I would say shame on you. It’s a part of your culture, (you) need stand up for it.”

He made this remark while expressing his views over difficulties women encounter while wearing a saree. As per him, saree is the world’s most amazing outfit and folks from all corners of the planet love it.

Even though audience applauded him for this comment, Twitter didn’t agree with the designer and users gave it back to him in the most epic way. Check out some selected tweets:
