Our journey started when we first opened our flagship store in Medan in 1994. The brand proved to be very popular amongst the Indonesian women that by 2002, SONAYNA had 3 outlet stores in various malls in Medan.
Over the years, SONAYNA has evolved from a company selling sarees to a brand specializing in formal Indonesian wear with an Indo-Fusion concept. SONAYNA began designing its own line of exclusive kebayas, dresses, Muslim wear, kaftans and embroidered fabrics with this concept in mind and is regarded by many fashion experts as the pioneer of Indo-Fusion formal wear in Indonesia.
This Indo-Fusion concept became so popular amongst fashion enthusiasts in Indonesia that women and fashion designers from out of town and even as far away as Malaysia and Singapore would especially fly in to Medan to take a look at the latest collections. In 2004, in order to get closer to its customers, SONAYNA spread its wings to Jakarta and opened its first flagship store in Jakarta in Pondok Indah Mall-I.
Today, SONAYNA is considered as one of the leaders in exclusive embroidered fabrics in Indonesia and is the first choice of many top fashion designers for their fabric needs.
Since the boutique launch in Jakarta, there were increasing demands on high quality designer ready to wear items. Because of the high popularity, we started rebranding our ready to wear designs as DEVAIN KAPOOR.
Throughout the years we have designed more styles that are exclusive and unique. Our signature digitally printed kaftans are amongst the most popular and are always high on demand. The concept was an instant hit and the product line quickly grew to include a wide range of garments.
Sales of the brand grew rapidly and in 2012, the brand started being sold in major department stores across Indonesia. The “Sonayna” brand is the first to introduce the digitally printed kaftans in Indonesia and remains the trendsetter in the category.
Sonayna is a fashion brand specializing in digitally printed garments. Sonayna uses the concept of Indo Fusion to design his garments whereby he combines Indian designs and workmanship and incorporates it into Indonesian formal and semi-formal wear such as Kaftans, Dresses, Blouses, Tops and Pants.
