Mumbai, April 2 (IANS) After mesmerizing the Lakme Fashion Week (LFW) audience with his creative brilliance, renowned designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee tugged at their heart strings when he made his entire team walk the runway with him.

Mukherjee’s palette had a riot of colours - red, green, black, white, ivory, beige, blue, orange, blue, magenta, to name a few.

Fabrics like brocade, satin, silk, cotton, velvet, organza net, jersey, appliqu
