Devi ShankarDevi is a real estate investment banker turned entrepreneur. During the 19 years stint in companies like KPMG, Deloitte, JLL and Anarock, dressing up for work had become a happy morning ritual. During her travel to countries like USA, UK, Singapore and Hong Kong, shopping for office wear was a necessity driven by lack of good and cool styles back home in India. This gap of cool and evolving styles drove Devi to experiment with some designs with the help of global fashion designers. The output that came out of that experiment set the seed for this venture. Fashion for Devi is also a vent for her creative bent of mind. With a fine eye for detail and aesthetics, and business sense of mind, Devi hopes to bring in the best of global fashion to the Indian woman. During her free time, Devi travels, reads voraciously and photographs landscapes and architecture. She is an absolute dog lover.
