Sougat Paul's stint in fashion started with studying at the prestigious N.I.F.T Kolkata. After completion of the degree he gained experience in working as a stylist in Mumbai. From there he moved on to working with various brands before venturing out on his own in 2010.
In 2010 the label debuted in Lakme Fashion Week as a gen next Designer & received a lot of accolades worldwide.
SOUP label was formed taking the initials of his name SOUGAT PAUL. The idea was to make something classy with a bit of coy. Inspiration comes from the smallest things like basket weave or a paper cutout. This label is an amalgamation of day to day thought knitted together. Detailing has been the mainstay for this label with a special impetus on the quality & finishing. Unsurprisingly Sougat Paul’s Cocktail & Gala Dresses are naturally vaunted for their exquisite gorgeousness & beloved not only in India but internationally too.
