Designer Sabyasachi apologises for his post ‘overdressed women are most likely to be wounded’

Ace fashion designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee has issued an apology on social media, after receiving major backlash for an Instagram post which stated, “overdressed women are most likely to be wounded”.

Thought the post by the designer meant to be an objectionable post that intended for endorsement of designer’s jewelry line, but ended up being termed as “misogynistic”, “ignorant” and “sexist” by the netizens.

The designer tried to clarify that the Instagram post was “intended as a message of love and empathy and a call to look beyond exterior appearances” which was not articulated correctly.

Ace fashion designer once again took to social media, this time to offer an unconditional apology in an open letter:

“I acknowledge the feedback we have received regarding the statements made in our recent Instagram presentation.

We hear you and although it was intended as a message of love and empathy and a call to look beyond exterior appearances, it wasn’t articulated correctly.

I understand that it does not convey the message appropriately at all and for that, I would like to accept blame and offer an unconditional apology.

Regards, Sabyasachi. ”
