Les Haute helping designers turn their dreams into reality
With its array of products Les Haute is helping aspiring designer at every stage - from the first stitch to placing the tiniest of embellishments to passing a quality check
Want to become a designer-turned-entrepreneur and roll out your own private label leather accessory brand? Well, you can actually do that, with Les Haute, a Kolkata-based home-grown avant-garde vogue fashion brand which is helping businesses transform their fashion designs into reality.
Les Haute, co-founded by Devika Majumder, Wall Street Journal-featured serial entrepreneur, and Raju Baidya, certified fitness coach and first generation entrepreneur, has now created a unique design platform christened as Fashionguilty, a vibrant and fast-growing community of designers, merchandisers, vendors and a team that can help you transform your designs into reality. Les Haute, which, with its array of products for both men and women, is already soaring in both pan-India and international markets, promises to help an aspiring designer at every stage- from the first stitch to placing the tiniest of embellishments to passing a quality check. It ensures a holistic approach while making one's dream products. So much so that in case you liked different characteristics of two bags and want them together in one, all you have to do is to draw up your own innovative design and Les Haute team would structure the accessories taking inspiration from you.
That's not all. The platform also offers one the opportunity of selling one's designs on its website. All one has to do is promote and market one's designs and Les Haute gives him/her a commission of 25 per cent when someone buys the product using one's code to avail a discount.
"Ours is a one-of-a-kind platform for unleashing your design dreams and transforming those aspirations into a tangible reality. It's like an actor-producer-or author-publishing house relationship. Just like the author writes and they publish, you design and we manufacture and make it happen and bring it to the masses," says a beaming Majumder. "We will launch your design on our website amongst our best-selling products with your name so that customers can identify the products. You can help in promotion and advertising and have a margin of 25 per cent commission on the sale of products," she adds.
"Les Haute has developed a Just In Time (JIT) inventory system, which works with no need to store large volumes of inventory at all times, capital expenditure can be reduced and cash flow is improved. And if one wants to place bulk order, it's better to let us know early so that we can order the raw materials like leather, fabrics, and embellishments beforehand," says Baidya.
