The Kolkata-based designer's latest collection, inspired by the tiger was part of Aircel's Save the Tiger campaign.

Sabyasachi ended the first day of the Lakme Fashion Week with his collection inspired by the tiger and the Sundarbans. Needless to say the line had a lot of yellow, black and ivory tones.

The collection also moved through the various decades to pieces of Jazz music.
