Before she entered the fashion world in 2017 with her store, she worked as a news correspondent for Zoom, NDTV Good Times, Ibn7, and Focus TV primarily covering fashion and entertainment beats ― from 2008 to 2011. Sugandha was also one of the popular faces of Property TV Dubai from 2008-2009 and Home Shop 18 between 2011 and 2014.
Post acquiring enough knowledge as a fashion correspondent for eight years, she took the first step towards building her empire and established the luxury store ONE. Since then, Sugandha has been towards bringing the best fashion brands to Raipur and has been successful in achieving her dream. ONE ― The Multidesigner Store does not only boast collections of labels like RANI-SVA, Anju Modi, Saaksha & Kinni, Deme by Gabriella, Anavila, Limerick, and several others but also is the first store in Raipur to have the country’s favourite Sabyasachi.
Understanding the requirement of her clientele and delivering without any fail, she has now launched her brand Dusala in January 2020, which she calls it as her passion project. Having grown in North embracing Pashmina and other Kashmiri fabrics, Sugandha always had a fondness for Kashmiri craft. As soon as she started traveling and got exposure to the fashion world, she understood how the availability of authentic and original. Pashmina is a rarity in the markets the world over.
Sugandha now works with Kashmiri craftsmen to introduce the authentic Pashmina to the world with a twist of newage experimentation. Through Dusala, she wishes to take the Kashmiri Craft ― especially Pashmina ― to the global market as there is already a huge demand for Pashmina. But, there are mostly unauthentic pieces of Pashmina fabric in the market which can ruin the reputation of the fabric. And, being a fashion aficionado and loyal consumer of Pashmina, she started her bit to introduce the greatness of the fabric in its most authentic version.
Sugandha is not only introducing the authentic Pashmina to the world but also enabling livelihood to the craftsmen by giving a great amount of work. A designer and an entrepreneur, Sugandha Kedia is also a fashion Vlogger and social media influencer for fashion, beauty, and fitness.
