Born and raised in the US, I felt we Indian-Americans always struggled to find trendy Indian outfits. We continued to grow our wardrobe with all the latest western trends, but when it came to attending an Indian function we would look like we came from an 80’s Bollywood movie and not the good kind! This was something I felt for a long time, but after completing my Bachelors in Fashion Design from Virginia Commonwealth University, I realized I would be able to provide girls like me, Indian outfits that were just as stylish and trendy as our western clothes. This passion of mine is what gave me the courage to take the step to move to the capital of Indian Fashion, Mumbai City! soon after moving to Mumbai, I worked with several fashion designers and boutiques to gain knowledge and experience. I started off as an intern and worked my way up to becoming a lead designer in one of the companies. This gave me the confidence to eventually start my own label. My self-titled label 'Sapana Amin' was finally created in 2008.
"I would like to thank you for working with me and helping me create a perfect outfit for my sister in law's baby shower. You were so patient with me and paid attention to every detail I shared with you. Your professionalism and your unique designs have me locked in as your client for lifetime. I recommend you to all my friends & family. Once again thank you and I will speak to you soon!"

"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.
Can't wait to see what her talents bring us next!"

"I absolutely loved my engagement outfit! It measured far beyond my expectations. Sapana did an amazing job from choosing the right fabric material, to the unique color combinations, and down to the intricate design of the blouse. I really appreciated her attention to detail and great customer service, which made working with Sapana so wonderful. I'm very excited to work with her in the future! Thank you so much Sapana!"

"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!!!!"

"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!"
