Sandhya Garg from "Project Runway 2014" is one of the contestants in Season 13 of the Lifetime reality fashion design competition series. She is a 28-year-old designer from Birmingham, Alabama.

Here is an interview with Sandhya Garg:

Describe your family:

Loving and very supportive.

Current occupation?

Self-employed designer.

Past jobs?

Allen Solly assistant womenswear designer India, Alexander McQueen, Alice Temperley, Izmaylova hand embroiderer, Liberty London sales, Schway services (web developing), all in London.


None at present. In past, I had a Doberman called Rani, which means "queen" in English.


Pethu, which means pumpkin in Hindi, my native language. My dad calls me that whenever he sees me. He loves me more than anything.

When did you realize you had designer potential?

I was always artistic, strong headed and very different from others. I loved designing clothes and bags for my dolls since I was 8 years old. I realized fashion design was what I had to do when I was 10 years old. Since then I have worked towards it.

First garment you ever made?

I made boxes full of clothes for my Barbie doll; I made my own skirt and pants when I was 10.

What's your design training/schooling, etc.?

I have two design degrees. The first one is from National Institute of Fashion Technology (NIFT), India, and the second one is from London College of Fashion, University of the Arts, London, UK.

Strengths as a designer?

My ability to face criticism positively, hunger for learning something new every day, respecting others' work, and fire in my heart to not rest till I fulfill my dreams. (But then my dreams are infinite.)

Weaknesses as a designer?

I work on my weaknesses to make them my strengths; right now I am working on my styling eye.

What are your influences?

I have looked at royal families of India for expensive and refined taste. When I was at Alexander McQueen I learned the power of flawless craftsmanship. My aesthetic is to design garments that please and intrigue the eye.

What's playing on your iPod when you're designing?

Radio. I like surprises.

Favorite material or fabric to work with?

I don't have one favorite material. I love working with variety.

Item you're most proud of designing?

I am always proud of all my designs, especially my latest work.

Favorite designer(s)?

Alexander McQueen, Manish Arora, Olivier Rousteing.
