Fun, Spirited, Eclectic - Sandhya Garg
How did you get into fashion?
I got into fashion at a very young age. When I was 9 years old I was always designing and sewing clothes for my dolls. This passion made me realize that this was the path I needed to be on.
What’s the story behind the creation of Sandhya Garg?
The creation of Sandhya Garg happened when I combined everything I felt I was extremely passionate about. Storytelling about the beauty of the world in forms of architecture, folklore, cultural heritage, the craft was a part of my design process that always inspired me. At the same time, I always felt very strongly about color, print, and pattern. It all came together over time as I understood how my design process defined and directed the brand ideology. To say that the clothing I make is a labor of love is an understatement.
What is the Sandhya Garg aesthetic in three words?

Tell us about your Amalfi Collection
Amalfi Collection was inspired by my trip to the Amalfi coast. It is hard not to get inspired while walking through the lanes of Sorrento and Positano. The cobbled, on the rare occasion mosaic-ed streets full of hand-painted ceramics, lemons and hanging chilies are such a beautiful sight. The saturated deep blue of the Mediterranean sea touches your heart. I captured this heartwarming feeling and created the Amalfi collection.
What are you currently working on?
Currently, I am working on my next collection, inspiration and expanding into the overseas market.
What can we expect from Sandhya Garg over the next few years?
Over the next few years, you can expect more color, print, pattern and incredible stories. I will continue to collaborate with some fantastic artists and create beautiful imagery.
