Several Reasons to be Starstruck

From the elegance of Kareena Kapoor rocking Masaba’s Bridal Collection to the dynamic duo of Taapsee Pannu and Surya Kumar Yadav crushing it for Reebok, our brand ambassadors kept up the cool quotient all year long. They weren’t just famous faces, they became a part of our brands’ stories, weaving magic with every move and expression. 

New Stores, Bigger Stories

Remember that feeling of finding the perfect fit? We bottled that up and sprinkled it on every single one of our store openings. From the swanky Louis Philippe store launch in Dubai, to Reebok’s foray in Lucknow, to the launch of a massive showcase of all things Masaba in Bandra, Mumbai each launch was a mini-festival of fashion and fun. We didn’t just open doors, we stretched our wings and laid claim to new frontiers to conquer.

Growing and Glowing

Our leaders weren’t just born, they were forged in the fires of passion and perseverance. Take Ashish Mukul, for example. From humble beginnings as a STRIDER in 2007, he’s now the Brand Head of Tasva, proving that dreams really do come true. Or Tanmay Dawane, who kept trading up his trainee badge till he got the Sales Head crown. And Vinamrata Gandhi? She went from Leadership Associate to Regional Sales & Operations Queen, showing us that women really do run the world. Their stories are like motivational mixtapes for all of us – reminders that anything is possible with a sprinkle of grit and a whole lot of heart.

Planet-First Fashion Always

We’re not just throwing supreme style at the world, we’re trying to be kind to our planet too. Think of us as Mother Nature’s best friends with killer wardrobes. We’re constantly finding ways to shrink our footprint, from using recycled materials to working with ethical suppliers. We want our clothes to make you look and feel good, and the same goes for how we want our planet to feel. Because let’s be honest, a world without glaciers is not a world we want to strut our stuff in.

Join us for a joyful toast to the future!

As we raise a glass to 2023, we’re brimming with excitement for what’s to come. We’ll keep telling amazing stories through fashion, forging connections that last a lifetime, and making the world a little more stylish and sustainable, one style at a time. Here’s to the next chapter, where the dreams are even bigger and the ambition even fiercer!
