I took a break for almost 10 years, till my second kid grew up to be independent enough to manage herself. During that period, I was continuously surveying the market, the prevailing fashions, brands and retail patterns. This was the time of Internet, social media. Throughout this time, I was designing and making pretty girls’ dresses for my daughters and their friends. Again, the suggestions poured in from fellow mothers to go for my own creations.
I started from home with few orders and fabrics in stock. Then my husband suggested to go for an online shop. Hence, I introduced my brand – Mahikaa Creations on Facebook.
With the support of family and friends, I got a great response with that. Now, we have grown into an online fashion store having a range of fashion jewellery, bags, suits and sarees and handlooms from all states. I enjoy doing all this as I have all basic knowledge pf fashion and fabrics.
At times, I would get crazy and stitch my daughters’ dresses in a day be it fancy dress, navratri or birthday party dresses. Now i do freelance designing and suggest my patrons about colours, cuts and dressing too. They all love my choice of collections and confidence. I have clients from abroad too now. As part of my business, i have introduced my brand on online selling websites too like- Shopclues, Ebay.in, etc.
Apart from this, I am a home baker, love baking and designing cakes, cookies, breads and confectionaries, do embroideries , teach kids and their friends crafts. Being a resident of Gujarat for so many years, I love Garba and I like to do art work in free time.
A mother of two girls, who are my inspiration behind Mahikaa – Mahek + Tanishka, I dream to make it an all round lifestyle store in the future.
I am Rajneeshlata Arora, a Punjabi brought up in Gujarat but with all qualities of a typical Punjabi. I did my graduation and postgraduation from Baroda. I have inherited the love and talent of stitching and embroidery from my mother. I love painting and cooking too. Even after scoring well in class 12, I opted for Home Science because of my love for art.
