CLIENT DIARIES

Roohi Patel - Sapana Amin" I had the pleasure of working with Sapana twice. The first time, I asked Sapana to create my reception outfit for my wedding. The design and craftsmanship on the choli and lengha was exquisite! I was so blown away with the embroidery and how the final piece looked. It truly was the perfect outfit for the most important day of my life! Since I had such a great experience with her, I reached out to her to make a dress for me to wear to my best friend’s wedding. Since this time I was not going to India, I had relied on sending her my measurements and hoped for the best. Although she was busy planning her own wedding, she made sure to send me updates on the outfit frequently. This shows how much she truly cares for her clients and her work. Once again, she did not disappoint! The outfit she sent me fit me like a glove!! I received many compliments all night! Being a fashionista myself, I truly appreciate her attention to detail and sending fashion forward pieces that will be sure to wow anyone! "

Shefali Patel - Sapana Amin" When I was planning my wedding there was no doubt in my mind I needed something that blended my two worlds of being an American born Indian. I wanted something that still had the beauty and richness of the traditional but with a modern take. An outfit that was catered for me and showed my personality. I have dabbled in fashion industry before and have designed many of my own outfits, so I knew in this case I needed someone who I could trust would deliver the same level of quality and style. So it was not question that I could entrust my good friend Sapana. Granted I knew her well before working with her on my wedding outfit but trust me when I say that she treats all her customers like her friend. You feel so comfortable talking to her and she gets exactly what you are thinking or want without you sometimes even saying a word...just like your best friend. She tells you like it is and will help you sway away from all the clutter of ideas and narrow down the best look for you. I know she takes great pride in all her work but her custom outfits are true couture creations. She is very meticulous and detail oriented and guides you from beginning to the end. Every little touch has her signature but customized to you. To me that is a true designer. "

Reshma Patel - Sapana Amin" Sapana has been amazing to work with from the initial inquiry process, up until even after the dress had been delivered. I trusted her to design outfits for my engagement, my mendhi, and my brother-in-law’s wedding, and she did awesome! Each time I have worn one of her outfits, I’ve received numerous compliments from people of all ages. Her work is the perfect blend of traditional and modern so people of all generations can appreciate and relate to it. I had my engagement party months ago and I am STILL getting compliments and requests for the designer's name to this day. Furthermore, she is extremely patient and listens to every idea/suggestion and works with you on even the smallest details. She provides great advice on color schemes, embroidering, blouse cuts, etc. Despite challenges I’ve had in the past with trying to get a custom outfit made from other designers, working with Sapana on a custom piece was incredibly easy and fluid. She is honest with you about what looks good and what does not. She also works with whatever your timeframe is. For instance, she was able to get my engagement party outfit to me within a month all the way from India, without compromising quality of the outfit (which is practically unheard of). I look forward to continuing to work with Sapana on many more of my outfits for special occasions to come! "

Anu Haider - Sapana Amin" I just wanted to write you a little note to express my heartfelt gratitude for how much you have done - From the initial consultations, your endless patience and dedication in designing the outfit, keeping me in the loop every step of the way even in sourcing the right materials, your feedback which helped shape and guide everything, to creating the final piece. You added detail to the outfit which I can undoubtedly say is truly unique. Everyone went crazy for the pocket in the skirt not to mention the beautiful hand-stitched embroidery and bead work. I was always able to get in touch with you, regardless of time difference or how small the question was. You made it so easy for me to organise everything from the UK, I didn't have to worry about this part of the wedding planning at all! Your talents are beyond compare and I will happily recommend you to everyone I know. Thank you for making this a day to remember for us. I'm keeping an eye out for your new collections, I will definitely be getting more of your wonderful creations! "

Paarul Chandra - Sapana Amin" Sapana Amin was one of my favorite vendors to work with! I had searched high and low for an Indian outfit that I liked, but nothing really spoke to me. I wanted to wear red, but I was looking for something unique and different. When I stumbled across Sapana Amin’s Bohemian collection online, I knew I had found my outfit. I love how she combined the raw silk floral top with the funky, vibrant, tribal printed skirt. She was extremely easy to get ahold of via email and responded within two days. She designed the outfit to fit me perfectly and I really appreciated her attention to detail. She had a quick turn-around time and her customer service was excellent. I loved her creation so much, that I had her design my welcome party sari as well! Sapana Amin is an extremely talented and innovative designer and I have already recommended her to so many of my friends. I look forward to working with her again, thank you Sapana! "

Krishna Amin - Sapana Amin" I had an amazing experience working with Sapana! I actually contacted her first though email for my engagement outfit! She was super-fast in response and customized my order to perfection. Normally, other designers don’t even responded back! But Sapana did within 24 hours! She is a really sweet, kind and a creative person. I love all her pieces to death! I continue to work with Sapana for my own wedding and my sister’s wedding. She is my “TO GO” person when I need an outfit. I trust her completely with all of my outfits and I know if I call her up and say I need an outfit, whatever she sends me (I don’t even have to look at it!), I know I will completely love it! "

Meeno Singh - Sapana Amin" Words will never be adequate to cover the spectrum of gratitude and respect I have for you! Sapana you are such an artist! I was always hesitant to work with someone over the Internet due to horrible experience in the past until I found you! Finding a designer that listens, communicates well, someone you can trust and that understands style, trends, fabric, uniqueness is hard to find. You brought forward beautiful designs and additional ideas to fit my personal style and have always done it in a timely manner! I've never had an issue with my fitting or quality of your outfits that you have customized for me! Sapana you are truly a designer that pays attention to detail and is very understating to your clients needs! Thank you again for such great pieces of personal, wearable art I will cherish forever! Can't wait to order more from your new collection!!!! "

" Sapana's taste and eye on design is impeccable. I have trusted her with my outfits since 2010. She has designed everything from simple outfits to pregnancy to baby and me to elaborate outfits for me. I love how her designs never go out of style and you will never leave a room without a handful of compliments. She is quick to respond and very easy to work with. She works in detail with you for each outfit and will go out of her way to make sure you are completely satisfied with your piece.

Sejal Patel - Sapana Amin"Sapana is an absolute gem to work with. Sapana helped bring my dream engagement outfit to life. I was having a bunch of anxiety about finding the perfect outfit. I looked at all the websites online & facetimed with various stores in India. Thank god my sister stumbled upon her work. The process was seamless to get the outfit designed to match my vision. Sapana was quick to respond, very honest, professional, & cleared every detail with me along the way. She kept me updated, made the process nearly effortless, and fun for me! I looked forward to getting her emails every morning. I got so many compliments on my outfit on the day of the engagement on how "me" the outfit was. It was perfect. Sapana even made my fiancé a matching pocket square from my lehenga fabric & sent me a matching fashion belt. Thank you Sapana for all your hard work! Very much looking forward to meeting you soon! =) –"

"Working with Sapana shouldn't even be called "working". It was such a wonderful experience from the beginning to the end. Her attention to detail and also gauging the client’s wants is immaculate. She knew exactly what I meant even though we communicated through email. Even down to offering suggestions for some of the measurements from her past experience and she was dead on. She had an idea of my vision and she created a piece beyond my expectations. The fit was perfect and I can't wait to work with her in the future. Sapana personally guides you the whole way and her professionalism can't be beat, she is simply one of the best in her field not only in fashion but in the whole experience.
Thank you Sapana! "

Ajaka Roth - Sapana Amin"It was an absolute pleasure working with Sapana. I knew that for our wedding in Costa Rica I wanted to wear a modern lehenga that mixed Vinay's heritage with my personal style. I stumbled upon images of Sapana's designs from her Bohemian-Rani collection while searching for design inspiration. I immediately fell in love with her eclectic design and unique pattern pairings and I knew that I had to have her design my wedding outfit. Sapana was professional and extremely responsive throughout the whole process. She listened to what I wanted as well as offered suggestions along the way to ensure the end product was stunning. In fact, we were so happy with the work she was doing throughout the process, that we asked her to also design Vinay's outfit to coordinate with mine. The end result was magical. Since working with Sapana for our wedding outfits, I have also purchased from her Enchanted Forest Collection as well as her Bombay Eclectic Collection allowing me to mix and match her pieces. When people see our wedding pictures or when I have worn her pieces to other weddings and events, I consistently receive compliments on Sapana's pieces. Her designs and quality of product are perfection and I look forward to continuing to work with Sapana for years to come."

Kunal Patel - Sapana Amin"Sapana Amin is a beautiful person inside and out. She is an incredible person to work with and delivers beyond your expectations. She designed a gorgeous dress for me for my sister-in-law's sangeet. People actually asked me if it was my own event. The moment I contacted her, until the day I wore the dress, Sapana made sure everything was perfect and satisfying. I did not have to worry about anything because she is a true professional and awesome at what she does. She is truly detail oriented. She learned exactly what I wanted. She assisted me the entire way -- helped me pick out the type of dress, the fabric, and the colors. Sapana made sure every detail was flawless and to my liking. The dress fit beautifully and perfectly complimented my body. I definitely recommend Sapana for any occasion. Thank you so much Sapana for a wonderful experience and dress. I look forward to working with you again."

Anita Bhakta - Sapana Amin"Sapana literally brought my vision for my reception gown to life! The most amazing part was that we not once spoke over the phone, it was all over text communication. Imagine the level of talent when you're able to sketch and create this vision for a client across the world literally based on some photos and a simple vision to start with! The process of designing a custom outfit was super simple with Sapana. I started by sharing some pictures of things I liked and my measurements. I have always had to alter every single on of my ready made outfits because it never fit properly, so I was a little nervous about the fit of the gown since Sapana has actually never seen me in person. My gown literally fit like a glove. I can still remember the overjoyed feeling I had the day it arrived and I put it on!!

Throughout the process, Sapana was really quick with responding back and extremely detailed! She will not stop until she finds the exact material/color/design that I had envisioned for my gown. One of the many things I appreciate about working with Sapana was her complete honesty in certain designs/colors based on my skin tone/body shape. She's straight forward with the estimated cost and truly stays within that budget (mine ended up being a little less than what we expected!) Overall, beyond satisfied with the gown Sapana designed for me. Sapana ended up designing a Mommy-daughter outfit for my sister and niece! It turned out super cute! Sapana is officially our family go-to designer! Thank you, Sapana! <3 "

"I wanted to take some time out to thank Sapana and her team for the wonderful work done on my engagement outfit. I needed something that was unique, sassy, modern and very chic like. While searching on Pinterest I couldn't help falling in love with Sapana’s designs. She was so quick to reply my emails and that gave me all the confidence I needed. I had my doubts with online designers. However, Sapana proved me wrong. The virtual journey with her was such an amazing and fun filled first time experience. She is so professional, talented, and pays attention to detail. I wouldn't have it any other way. I reached out to her in such short notice and she worked very hard with her team to have the outfit ready and delivered way before time. What she customized for me was a dream come true and made my engagement ceremony even more special. My fiancé loved it too. The lehenga was simply perfect for me. Sapana listened, she promised and she delivered. I have no hesitations recommending her to anyone looking for something gorgeous, modern and cute for their big day or any occasion for that matter. Wedding preparations can be so hectic especially deciding what to wear but having someone as reliable as Sapana, rest assured one will not be disappointed. Looking forward to working with this lovely lady again in the future!"
