Maharsh Shah, Co-Founder, Enakshi, shared, “Fashion in India has witnessed a swift revolution in the industry with the growing popularity of Indian-contemporary blends. Multiple brands and designers have tried creating their mark in this segment through their creative and quirky designs. However, most brands have failed to grasp/address the most important requirement of a modern Indian woman, namely, individuality. At Enakshi, we ensure that while we bring novelty to the table, we also guarantee individuality by upholding our promise of ‘One woman. One garment. One design’. We launch new collection every 21 days and empanel different designers for each collection to ensure novelty in our designs.

The company was launched in March, 2018 and is headquartered in Ahmedabad. Enakshi was conceptualised and created by Nilay Shah, Maharsh Shah and Namya Patel. Two of the Founders are young entrepreneurs, with Maharsh Shah still completing Business School. The early twenties Founders chose to launch from Ahmedabad since it is the hub for fashion designing and also their hometown.
Nilay Shah has been in the women’s ethnic wear business for over two decades, prompting his son, Maharsh to follow his footsteps albeit with a modern twist and propelled by technology. Nilay has dealt with women customers for many years and has seen women’s fashion evolving over the decades. But one question has always remained constant. Customers always ask “Can we get something new and unique? Something very exclusive?”.
