Introducing Industry Insider - Sonya Keshwani
Posted on December 01 2023
Sonya Keshwani, the founder of StyleEsteem Wardrobe, has an inspiring story of resilience and creativity. As a breast cancer survivor, she experienced the challenges of losing her hair to chemotherapy at the young age of 29. Frustrated with the limited options available for head coverings, she decided to take matters into her own hands and design her own solution.
Being a creative person, Sonya drew from her love of fashion and began visiting a fabric shop after each chemotherapy infusion and experimented with her mom’s sewing machine. As her personal turban collection started to grow, so did her confidence, as she regained her voice and power through this new passion. Inspired by the elegant and feminine silhouette of the turban, she made the bold move and launched StyleEsteem Wardrobe, the first fashion label to design headwear according to the season and occasion.
StyleEsteem’s mission is to empower every person through fashion, no matter where their hair journey takes them. Today, StyleEsteem’s designs are featured on runways and in the media globally, as well as on notable celebrity figures, including its latest release, the couture collection. However, Sonya’s vision for StyleEsteem extends far beyond fashion. As Sonya continues to gracefully build her brand in the fashion industry, StyleEsteem’s Grace with Style initiative supports a vast patient community through beauty and mental health programming, and turban donations.
Sonya envisions StyleEsteem headpieces as one-of-a kind crowns for the modern man and woman. With a history dating back as far as 4,000 years, Sonya believes that turbans can be a symbol of empowerment and self-expression for everyone, regardless of their gender, cultural background, or hair journey.
