Raised in India, Kopal enjoyed both the vibrancy of the country’s bustling urban streets, as well as the rich cultural history and traditions embodied in everyday life. Kopal pursued her passion in design by attending the Fashion Institute of Technology where she honed her skills in design, styling, photography and fabric selection. Kopal started her fashion career at Bottega Veneta, then went on to work for notable brands like Ralph Lauren and Converse. She was always drawn to the joys of a simpler lifestyle and continued to spend vacations working with local artisans, traveling to Bolivia, Peru, Brazil, Ecuador and Morocco. Through her travels, she developed a stronger sense of her own design style. After 14 years in the fashion industry, she launched KOPAL focusing on ageless, authentic and sustainable lifestyle clothing modeled after her own personal journey.
