About the Founder
An established designer and passionate photographer herself, Minaal Randhawa is the brains behind Phenominaal. Minaal has completed specialized courses from the London College of Fashion and Central Saint Martins, and has also attended NIIFT. She started her career as a fashion designer with HoniiSandhu Bridal Couture, an internationally acclaimed bridal wear line based in Chandigarh. Working closely with her mother, HoniiSandhu, to create enviable creations for three years helped her gain valuable experience. She also developed a deep appreciation for design and fine craftsmanship.
Armed with the knowledge of textiles and silhouettes, Minaal launched her eponymous indo-western clothing line in 2016, which combined the classic with the chic; a collection that challenged the fashion scene with the designer’s creative genius.
She forayed into the world of footwear when she realized there was a lack of custom handcrafted luxury shoes in the market that provided a perfect blend of elegance, style, and comfort. This led her to design her first collection of Espadrilles and served as the inspiration for launching Phenominaal.
