Mumbai, April 4 -- Sonam Kapoor, who has long been considered a style icon, recently announced that she would be launching her own fashion line. The actor has started sketching several designs and is almost already with the first few garments.
But before it hits the market, Sonam has decided to gift the first dress she has designed to her mother, Sunita Kapoor. "She thought it would be best to start from home, so she took a lot of time to design her first dress, which she can gift to her mother before catering to customers," says a source close to the actor.
We've also learnt that Sonam prefers designing western outfits to traditional ones. The source explains, "She is personally more comfortable in western clothes. The outfit she is designing for Sunita is a kurta with loose pants."
We tried contacting Sonam, but she was unavailable for a comment. However, her spokesperson confirmed the development, and said, "It's a new start for her and she is excited to gift her first design to her mother."
