Born in Mumbai, India in 2007, KALKI evokes the very spirit of the city it was founded in. An upstart, innovative, and dynamic brand – KALKI – offers the best of contemporary, ethnic Indian fashion and fusion-wear styles. Staying true to the brand’s unique promise of premium and wearable fashion, KALKI unveils fresh collections and all-new designs throughout the fashion calendar.
The management team (Saurabh Gupta, Shishir Gupta and Nishit Gupta) at Kalki were super poised for taking its brand further and wanted to structure its internal systems and process to drive employee productivity, operational efficiency along with focused data tracking and improvements across the organization.

How we helped a fast-growing women's fashion brand to scale to newer heights by designing a Performance Management process along with data trackers and dashboards
We had detailed sessions with each stakeholder of the management team to understand the need for this exercise and what according to them are the challenges that they want to be addressed at the end of the project
We had interactions with every unique role in the organization and understood their roles and deep-dived into the challenges faced by them and what according to them can be done better
We started seeking and analyzing data and understood there was limited to no data and most of the work was done basis historic experience or individuals' gut feelings
We re-sat with Management and mapped out where they envision themselves in the next 2-3 years and build the entire project strategy to achieve the outcome
Post the interactions with Management and the team, we had clarity on the issues/challenges and bottlenecks within the organization that can stall or impact the growth plans of the Management.
Below are the key findings:
There was limited data tracking and there was no focus on performance improvements due to the lack of data tracking/availability
The team lacked knowledge of what was happening outside in the Retail and Fashion industry and were stuck in doing the same thing for years.
Kalki Fashion has established itself as one of the leading brands when it comes to Bridal Wear and Indian Ethnic Wear.
Leading celebrities like Kriti Sanon, Yami Gautam, Disha Patani, Malaika Arora, Aditi Rao Hydari, Pooja Hegde, Vaani Kapoor and Tara Sutaria have walked the ramp for their collection launch at 'The Bombay Times Fashion Week.
Kalki Fashion also launched a grand store in Delhi in 2022.
