A Femina Miss India 2nd runner-up, Kommal went on to represent her country at the Miss International Pageant in Japan in 1992. She studied at the National Institute of Fashion Technology (NIFT) in Kolkata in 1996, and further attended Central Saint Martin’s College of Art & Design in London in 2009.
The designer launched her eponymous label in 2005, as an epitome of refinement and luxury in fashion. The essence of the brand is youthful, chic glamour and sophistication. Kommal Sood collections blend the ancient heritage with a modern twist. The label presents eveningwear with styles in high-end demi-couture.
A Kommal Sood ensemble is meticulously crafted by combining corsetry with tailoring and drapery. With an innovative mix of Eastern suggestions & European sensibility for cuts and sartorial styling, the brand transcends borders, inspired mostly from her extensive travels, historical and modern architecture and global aesthetics. Kommals distinctiveness is fluid silhouettes, defined cuts and eclectic embroidery.
After kick-starting 2012 with the debut of her label at Lakme Fashion Week (Summer/Resort 2012), Kommal showcased her Autumn/Winter collection at the Winter/Festive 2012 edition of Lakme Fashion Week, followed by the presentation of her Spring/Summer 2013 collection Lakme Fashion Week (Summer/Resort 2013). She also wowed buyers with her ready-to-wear collection at the Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week (Autumn/Winter 2013).
Kommal’s designs are the most sought after choice for the red carpets and for most glamorous events, and celebrities are a natural match to her fabulous designs with some of the country’s top actresses like Madhuri Dixit and Nargis Fakhri donning her creations at their appearances.
