Akshika Poddar

Founder, Rareism, House of Rare

When it comes to the products of the brand, Akshika is of the opinion that the design of the ensemble should enhance the character of the wearer, not overpower it; and being fashionable is subjective and personal. It should be about celebrating you and your style, and not always following the crowd and adhering to the most popular trends. In her brand, she deems it necessary that the outfits be easy to wear, while still staying elegant and minimalistic. When asked about the future she sees for her brand, she says, “The vision I have for Rareism is to make it a brand that women associate with dressing up for themselves and being comfortable, no matter the event or occasion! Our mission is to make this ideology pan- India and make every woman feel this self- love and confidence”.
