Even before opening, the Sabyasachi NYC store has become legendary.
Not because the world’s most famous South Asian designer is setting up his first official shop in the US. Or because US-based brides are finally getting a much needed addition to the 5-star bridal shopping experience in our home country.
No, it isn’t any of those things that give the Sabyasachi NYC store it’s legendary status. It’s because after nearly 3 years of hazy internet reporting (you’re welcome) and zero official word about an opening date, I started to think it would only ever exist as a legend; whispers of a Sabyasachi NYC store that never came to be.
Despair not! Because we have (drum roll, please) official word on when those Bengal tiger emblazoned doors are going to open.
And would you believe that lil’ ole me is the one to break the news?! I know, it’s crazy. It only took months of peppering the customer service staff for info and being told, “Sir/Ma’am, please check Instagram,” reaching out to the architect, and getting a referral to an actual insider before I got the scoop.
Okay, okay, enough of the small talk! Here are the 3 most important things to know about Sabyasachi NYC.
