Sandeep Khosla is a son of Kapurthala, an erstwhile Principality of Punjab. He attended The Doon School, one of India's most prestigious public schools, where he excelled at the extra-curricular, including theatre, tie and dye, batik, drawing, painting and carpentry.
An initial foray into the family leather business is how the fashion bug first bit Sandeep. A brief stint with an exporter afforded him hands-on experience at working with a variety of fabrics and learning the ABC's of garment manufacturing. He left Kapurthala to live in Delhi for a year, where he launched his own label "Limelight”, which retailed at a popular boutique called ‘Appearances’. A decision to move to Mumbai found him, by sheer coincidence, working with Xerxes Bhathena, the same designer who had given Abu his first break.
August, 1986 brought a chance meeting with Abu at a mutual friend's home. And the rest as they say is history.
Sandeep is a born extrovert and possesses an entrepreneurial flair. He gravitates towards risk-taking, something which has helped propel the ambition shared by the duo. He is an art aficionado, an inveterate traveller and cinema buff.
