Today we’d like to introduce you to Sandhya Garg.
Hi Sandhya, it’s an honor to have you on the platform. Thanks for taking the time to share your story with us – to start maybe you can share some of your backstory with our readers?
After a successful stint on Project Runway Season 13, I decided to launch my namesake brand of “One of a kind” Dresses and clothing collections. Label Sandhya Garg is about every woman who has ever wanted to feel special in a big crowd. I, myself have several times struggled to find that one special dress that would make me stand out in a crowd of generic black/blue dresses. Fashion, color, design are in my blood. I started designing and making clothes for my Barbie doll at ten years old. Inspired by my mother and Aunties, I was always very interested in knitting, lace making, crochet, embroidery and textiles. I pursued my passion for design and fashion by studying fashion in India and London. I polished my skills at International design studios training at Alexander McQueen, Alice Temperley and Izmaylova, learning everything from different pattern cutting techniques to hand embroidery craft and vintage knitting-lace making at the Gucci factory in Italy. I decided to launch my own label after graduating from the London College of Fashion in 2011. The brand has an international presence thanks to a very successful stint on Project Runway Season 13, USA. On the famous reality show, I won 2 Challenges, Was in Top a lot and my work was loved by Heidi Klum, Nina Garcia and Zac Posen. Specializing in womenswear, for me fashion is all about glamour and personal style. At present, I am based in Los Angeles, California raising my adorable toddler. My lifelong dream and passion has been to tell my unique stories through the art of clothing that shows a fusion of exceptional signature prints and classic, flawless design.
Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
It hasn’t been a smooth road but a roller coaster ride full of fun ups and eye-opening lows. I have built my business from foundation up and learnt a lot on the way. When I started, I was completely clueless about the American retail market and retail changes constantly so there is learning everyday. It has been a very rewarding journey so far though.
Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
I am a fashion designer with a deep love for travel and heritage crafts techniques. I create custom bespoke printed capsule collections of dresses, tops, bottoms and handwoven jackets. I am known for my Resort wear dresses for women, wedding guest dresses, beachwear, cruise wear collections. Women love my use of bold color, intricate embroidered details from Indian craftsmen and stunning patterns. My clothing designs are wearable art that bring a lot of compliments and joy to women wearing them.
