Sonia Mehra

Indian designer Sonia Mehra has built her long-standing career in fashion by following her own set of rules. Known for her celebration of the exuberant, the embellished, and the over the top, Sonia has been rocking the fashion industry with her unique and original designs since the 1990s. Her commitment to remain true to her one-of-a-kind vision has afforded Sonia continued success in an industry known for its fickleness. Her ability to change with the times while keeping her designs pure has not gone unnoticed.

Since a very long time she has been portrayed as one of the leading designers and a lot has been written about her work and her accomplishments which has influenced a lot of upcoming designers to look at her work and creativity.

Sonia was born in Mumbai and spent her childhood in Ahmadabad, which incidentally is famous for its ethnic glass work and embroidery work on fabrics. Her inspiration was derived by such artistic handy work of women of Gujarat and Rajasthan. With all the interest and passion of a designer Sonia took to the skies and flew around the world to study Fashion and look at the work of various designers around the world. In 1990 Sonia officially entered the Indian Fashion scene and soon established herself a name in being one of the top designers in the Bridal wear segment, Branding in India in the early 90s was not all that popular and just a few names were thrown about in the circle who know what branded clothes really meant. Sonia decided to give it a go at branding and she started her own label Sonia Creations by Sonia Mehra in the year 2001, which soon was changed to a personal signature name Sonia Mehra . The personalized signature name soon became her brand or so called brand image with a formulation which said: Sexy silhouettes, hippie inspired flowing fabrics, whimsical detailing and most importantly, a fabulous fit.

Now firmly part of the what was considered the Youth Quake, Sonia soon found herself amidst a trend where the young wanting to remain ethnic, also wanted hints of western culture to be visible in the way they were dressing. This bought about the Fashion of Indo Western so to say Fusion Wear.

The rich repertoire of skills gained has proven helpful as the India-born bridal designer is now frequently described as the leading innovator of the contemporary-classic and a westernized combined look. Sonias version is to make each design look immortal from generations to generations. A look of infinite simplicity, says Sonia, combining the perfect cut with sumptuous fabrics, romantic grace and light modern movement.

A master of the contemporary-classic and modern look after almost a decade with her own label, Sonias designs are timeless in their elegance. Avoiding trends, she instead expands on prior collections. she incorporates the input from her team of contributors, but more importantly, from brides-to-be and her clients as they provide her inspiration. She works closely with her customers during trunk shows to get an accurate picture of what real brides desire and what her clients visualize on the concepts of Fusion wear taking and suggesting ideas which are quiet visible in her designs and dresses.
