Although trained as an Architect, Sona has always considered fashion as her inspiration in architecture and vise versa. Her work is very conscious of the feminine (not to be confused with feminist or work designed by women). Feminine to her contains such qualities as delicacy, fragility, vulnerability and at times excessiveness. She strives to embrace and celebrate these qualities in her work. Fashion is the perfect outlet of her interest, whether it be the inspiration or the final product. Take a moment and check out Sona’s scarves here!
