Being born and brought up as a true Delhiite, Sagar Sondhi was on a constant hunt to express himself through his work in the most creative way possible. Delhi is indeed the fashion capital and it has time and again proved that evolving with time is the key to sustainability. Sagar’s connection with his city is so innately special that he decided to venture out using his experience of being involved in the media and publishing industry, which was inherited and inculcated with the help of his father Deepak Sondhi, who has been a pioneer in this industry.
