Dr. Sowmya Dogiparthi, Kanakavalli’s March Vignette, is a dermatologist whose love for beauty permeates every aspect of her life and work. Having grown up abroad before returning to India to study, Dr. Sowmya imbibed a modern, global outlook while staying closely connected to her family’s Indian roots and traditions. As a dermatologist and cosmetologist, aesthetics and first impressions are important, but her priority is to be a compassionate doctor who helps patients reclaim their sense of confidence and feel comfortable in their own skin. Dr. Sowmya’s appreciation for all things beautiful is reflected in her love for unique and handcrafted objects, from original paintings and handmade wooden idols to saris and jewellery—each artistically created by skilled artisans and with a story of its own.
Dr. Sowmya curates a selection of gorgeous Kanakavalli saris that epitomise the coming together of the traditional and the contemporary. Explore the curation right here, and read the entire conversation on the blog.
