Growing up in America, Indian clothing had very limited uses and when it was used, the style, fashion, and trends here were completely different than what they were back in India. I'd love to say that Anis Collections was a well-thought-out, planned brand. In reality, however, Anis Collections was born simply from a need of one 21-year-old girl who found it hard to get what she wanted out of her desi clothing. I had tried it all, shopping in India, shopping in Edison, ordering online, etc.
Shopping in India was just plain overwhelming. I hated not being able to look at anything without being asked a million questions or being followed around in the store. I also didn't like that there rarely were things that fit me or in my size. Finally, because of the difference in trends between India and America, I found that the items I wanted, the stores never had. Going to Edison, the clothing often was outdated, not the best quality, and super expensive for what it was. I have purchased outfits from there as well and just like the outfits I got ready-made from India, I wore them once and they sat in my closet. The ordering online option was a gamble, sometimes you'd get something amazing and other times it would be terrible.
All in all, I wanted to get what I wanted that was in my budget but also was great quality. Because I wanted this, I thought maybe other people would be based on all the complaints I heard around me. When the brand began, we started with womenswear, but quickly grew to incorporate menswear and even the occasional kid’s outfits. We do custom wear so that you, as the customer can decide how you want your outfit to look and fit. Bridal is our main business, from creating a bride's dream outfit, to coordinating her groom, family, and bridal party, we love our wedding day clients! What does creating an outfit with me look like? I make it a point to be your best friend in the process, to make sure you get exactly what you want.
We first go through the inspiration phase of collecting images. Then we create an initial design and come up with a budget. Once everyone is happy with all those components we move on to our meticulous measurements phase and the deposit payment. After that, you get to sit back and relax as we send you to process photos of the magic happening in our workshops. Once the outfit is here about 10-12 weeks later, we call you to either come in for a fitting if you're local or ship the outfit to you! We take care of all alterations if we can but if not we will walk you through any little tweaks you need to do before your big day.
Are you ready to create your dream outfit?
