Founder, Curator and Head Designer
Vandna, designer par excellence, started her journey in the field of fashion in 1994. She graduated from Delhi University with a degree in Mathematics but then decided to follow her passion for design and fashion, and did a two-year Fashion Designing course from the prestigious college - YWCA. Vandna, in the true entrepreneurial style, set up a small boutique at home, which she has single-handedly grown into a well-known and respected brand. She now runs and owns - Vandna's Aakarshan, one of the best boutiques (as per google rating) in Gurugram, and has recently launched her eCommerce venture - Ranng by Vandna.
Early on in her career, Vandna recognized that fashion and style were not the privileges of just the rich and famous but every woman's right. She has kept that core belief at the heart of all her work. Over the past 26 years, she has converted many women to look at fashion as a lifestyle and have a wardrobe to meet their specific needs without compromising on quality and style. The scores of testimonials from grateful customers bear witness to the fact that she understands her clients style preferences and designs accordingly. From clients in countries as far apart as Canada, Dubai, and Indonesia, Vandna already has an international profile and has successfully designed a complete set of wedding outfits from bride to bride maids and mother of the bride in the UK and USA. Most of this work is done via remote video consultations for style and measurements. It is an accolade to her attention to detail and experience that she achieves the perfect fit and style for her clients every time besides always delivering it on time.
Vandna aims to deliver haute couture styles at affordable prices to all her clients, whether in India or abroad, and the launch of her online boutique - ‘Ranng by Vandna’ is all set to make this dream come true.
Co-Founder, Curator and Creative Head
At what age should we forget about our dreams? If you ask this question to Seema's, the answer would be - NEVER! Seema has been associated with Vandna right since the inception of the boutique. Despite a career as a mathematician, Seema always had creativity and an artistic side with an eye for color, harmony and design and ran a successful part-time business of gift wrapping items for wedding and festivals and creating gift ornaments for Diwali and dreamt of running a business of her own. After working for 28 years as a Mathematics lecturer, she quit her job to fulfil her dream to be an entrepreneur and joined Vandna’s Aakarshan to help her sister expand her business. Her teaching career has given her invaluable people, time and project management skills besides the ability to communicate successfully to a wide variety of audience. She has helped in designing the layout of boutique and accessories. She also manages the production, detailing of accessories and her people skills have inevitably led her to take responsibility for the human resource aspects of the business, including the professional and personal welfare of employees.
Seema’s natural outgoing nature makes her easily gel with clients at a personal level and with her knowledge of the power of accessorizing outfits, she guides them to show off Vandna’s designs in its full potential. Her creative instincts, unique ideas of using the accessories in their best way on a garment complements designer Vandna’s vision.
