When you hear the name Sabyasachi Muckherjee, you know you’re about to experience the work of a powerhouse. One of India’s most prominent and revered designers, Sabyasachi doesn’t follow trends: he instead designs transcendent ensembles that transform the entire fashion landscape. His presentation at Lake Fashion Week Autumn/Winter 2011 was a study in richness.
Now you can add some Sabyasachi flair to your own Autumn/Winter personal collection by emulating the laurel-inspired headbands that adorned his models.
LUXEMI’S DIY HEADBAND
What you’ll need:
4. Glue Gun
Although Sabyasachi’s headbands make a major impact, lucky for us, they actually aren’t that hard to make. First, pick up a headband from a department store or even online.
Next, visit a local craft store (or online store) to pick out the perfect piece of trim, also known as applique. You can find it in all colors, with sequins, crystals or rhinestones. This is where you get to flex your creativity muscles and pick a piece that is expressly you. Measure the trim against your headband, making sure to cover the headband in applique until at least your ears. Use scissors to trim excess trim.
Once you select your trim, apply a small, evenly distributed layer of glue from your hot glue gun to the trim (making sure not to have loose pieces of trim floating or putting too much glue in one place). Quickly apply the trim to the headband. Press down for one minute.
Voila! You’ve got a Sabyasachi-inspired piece that’ll crown your look this season.
