Welcome to an insightful interview with Archana Rai, the visionary Founder of Varushka, a pioneering clothing brand dedicated to women’s western wear.

In this interview, we delve into Archana’s inspirations, challenges, and triumphs as she navigates the dynamic landscape of the fashion industry, offering insights into the creation and evolution of Varushka.

What have been some of your failures and what have you learned from them

Archana Rai: I was a one-man army, because of financial constraint. Accomplished all tasks in a much longer time. Failure to do any one of the tasks created obtrusive roadblocks, which was an unnecessary slower process

What is your mission and vision at the outset

Archana Rai: To push the boundaries of style and innovation. We seek to empower individuals through good quality and affordable fashion. Empowering innovation and design to provide total customer satisfaction at competitive prices.

We seek to be loved, trusted and be the favourite of the masses. Everyone should be able to afford nice things. Quality shouldn’t be a luxury.

Our vision is delivering happiness to customers.

What services or products do you offer

Archana Rai: From elegant dresses to chic tops to smart casual shorts we cater to the dynamic preference of contemporary and stylish women of today.

What was the inspiration behind turning and entrepreneur or startup

Archana Rai: Having worked in garment industry for 16 years, wanted to pursue my goals and ideals with greater independence and control. I wanted to make decisions independently and my drive to set it up is that I am  passionate about fashion. I wanted to see my work on people on the street, while turning my passion into a  business.

Running a business also means there is scope to have a flexible work schedule as compared to having a job. The traditional 9-to-6 office routine often meant rushing through mornings, navigating the evening traffic, which left me with little quality time to spend with my daughter.

Your success tips for young and aspiring entrepreneurs and startups

Archana Rai: Starting a business is an exciting journey, but comes with inherent risks. We never know the outcome of our efforts unless we actually do it. Learn from your mistakes. When you learn from your mistakes, you move closer to success — even though you initially failed.

Starting and maintaining a successful business is hard work. You’re more likely to sustain the effort required if you love what you do. Be passionate about your work.
