Fashion is a form of expression, an art that allows you to feel empowered, creative and confident - Kamal Sood


'Since the young age of 6, I watched my mom handmake fabrics on our humble sewing machine. Seeing her design such colorful and intricate outfits for my sister and I, it drew me to art, design, and fashion. And, visiting India throughout the years just made me fall deeper in love with the country’s rich art and diversity. Taking inspiration from my mom, as a teenager I began experimenting with designing my Indian outfits! It was not until I decided to make my very own wedding lehenga from scratch, that I realized my lifelong love affair with fashion was just beginning to play out! I had an established career and a settled family life, but at the age of 35 I gave up my career and took a leap of faith to follow my dreams' says the rising fashion entreprenuer Kamal Sood.

Mumbai is the perfect amalgamation of everything a city can offer - soul, charm, art, history, cinema and most importantly where dreams come true.”

Kamal is a one woman army. She does not have a social media agency, a stylist, or a writer. She takes pride in bringing her vision to life, envisaging, and directing everything from start to end for her collections and photoshoots. She now aspires to take India and her designs to the world, making it a global brand and a household name. “I want the world to know what makes India special, a land known for its rich culture, textile, and craftsmanship. It is an honor to be able to express my creativity through India's art. My vision is to change the way we see Indian fashion, it does not have to be traditional.”
