THE CRYSTAL-STUDDED ROAD TO FAME
What started as a clutch bag for her sister’s wedding became a crystal gateway for a diverse set of customers. Priyanka Mahajan didn’t want to carry just about any bag to her sister’s Big Day! It had to be special, and with her creatively flamboyant spirit, she put together a masterpiece that shined in the eyes of mesmerised beholders.
Priyanka never imagined her creativity would travel several miles, finding itself gracing à la mode trends across various occasions and ceremonies.
Word travelled fast about Priyanka’s famously hand-designed clutch bag.
Lo and behold, her label ‘Crystal Craft by Priyanka’ was launched in 2011.
The first exhibition was at the Akshay Pratishthan at the Swiss
Embassy, Delhi, followed by retailing at multi-designer hi-end stores like
Ogaan, MAI, Aza Fashions (Delhi, Mumbai).
The founder of Bridal Asia, Divya Gurawara, was fascinated by the passion and penchant for such remarkably unique and unthought-of designs. She encouraged Priyanka to scale up and participate in Bridal Asia, India’s premier bridal exhibition. This event initiated Crystal Craft designs as the much sought-after clutch bags for every bridal and gifting segment.
ABOUT THE FOUNDERS
The journey of Visionaries
Priyanka has done M. Des (Masters in Design), specializing in Textile Design & Development from National Institute of Fashion Technology NIFT-Delhi (1998-2000). She garnered in-depth knowledge about fibers to fabrics, weaving, prints & various surface ornamentation techniques. She worked with the Austrian crystal brand Swarovski, India, for two and half years.
Her experience and work involved top designers, export houses, and high-end clientele, giving her the hands-on experience she needed for understanding and interpreting the market, trends, design & production management.
Much of Priyanka’s ventures that led to opening up her design boutique began after she got married.
Thus, the luxury brand ‘Crystal Craft by Priyanka’ was launched with her husband Dinkar Mahajan, who has since spearheaded all marketing and sales efforts as the Business Development Head.
Dinkar’s in-depth knowledge of the industry, sharp intellect, analytical thinking with over 25 years of work experience gives the impetus to promote and market the brand well. He truly believes in building customer relations and trust through quality products and service.
Crystal Craft has gained growing recognition through membership opportunities with FICCI FLO, India Habitat Centre, EPCH, and IMC, Mumbai. Even celebrity stylists and fashion influencers have fancied the Crystal Craft designs, both in India and internationally.
