Sonia Jetleey

Sonia Jetleey designs for the Modern Woman, who knows is ambitious, driven, graceful and yet respects her roots. She is known to strike a balance of the international trends with the Indian Sensibilities. Each garment is self-narrative of the design process, right from the conceptualization stage to its execution. Since the inception of her studio, in Delhi’s prime location, Defence Colony, Sonia has dressed the most successful women in different walks of life, namely, Home-Makers, Pilots, Entrepreneurs, Fellow Designers, CA’s, Bureaucrats, et all.

She is extremely quick in gauging what her customer is looking for and never fails to impress them with a wide array of designs and what gets better is that she has perfected the art of customizing a product for a customer in order to make them feel that they own a ‘one in a million’ design.

Sonia is a Registered Member of the Fashion Design Council of India (FDCI) and very religiously has been participating in the fashion weeks held by the fashion body. A Graduate in Business Administration, Sonia studied courses in fashion design from Sophia Polytechnic, Mumbai and NIFT, Delhi. She made her debut in 2003, via a fashion week organized by the FDCI.In August 2004, Sonia showcased on an ICCR platform, via a series of four fashion shows entitled “Princess of India” held in Tashkent and Almaty, clearly the first Indian fashion show which started a Historical – Cultural Revolution. The Collection was well received by both the partnering countries.

Sadan Pande

Dressing up is not a statement, it’s an act. Where design comes forward and with a mix of color, style and fabric defines an attitude. So every time when you plan to dress up, it reflects your very own self. From bold look to subtle serenity and from patterns to solids, it goes on to reflect your panache for looking and feeling good…Seldom designers work on fabrics…most of the times they work on the mind set.

Sadan Pande is not about creating designs, it is all about Creation. Through designs, color combinations, symmetrical-asymmetrical patterns, choice of fabric…Sadan promises to write nuances of fashion.

In Silhouettes you will find reflection of your own self; in the choice of colors you will find a touch of seasonality. From sharp spring to colorful summers and from thinking monsoons to a little tight lipped autumn, in every collection you will find a character of its own.

This summer was all about a tinge of lime, abundance of white and extreme sensuality…no where we talked about fabric, cuts, designs and styling…At Sadan Pande intricacies of designs are pure hygiene…essence is Creation

Come create your world…
