The Underlying Idea Behind Starting Juniper Fashion Was To Create Unique And Innovative Clothing & Accessories That Meet The Needs And Preferences Of Customers. My Vision Was To Fill A Gap In The Market For Affordable Ethnic Wear And To Address A Specific Customer Need Or Pain Point. Juniper Also Prioritizes Sustainability, The Usage Of Eco-Friendly Materials, And Ethical Manufacturing Processes To Appeal To Consumers Who Value Environmental & Social Responsibility. Some Of The Most Unique Features Of Juniper Fashion Are Attention To Detail, Sustainable And Ethical Practices, Timeless Design, And Community Engagement.

What Are The Different Roles And Responsibilities You Shoulder As The Founder Of Juniper Fashion? What Are Your Primary Focus Areas In The Said Role?

As The Founder Of The Firm, I Take Care Of A Lot Of Responsibilities. Some Of Those Responsibilities Involve Creating And Developing Business Plans To Determine The Right Path For The Business. I Also Look After Branding And Marketing, Which Is One Of The Most Crucial Part When It Comes To Sales. I Also Take Care Of Product Design And Development As It Is Vital To Ensure That The Designs Meet The Needs Of The Target Audience. Coming To The Focus Areas, I Mostly Look Into Cost Management, Sales & Revenue Growth, Brand Building, And Talent Development.

Throw Some Light On The Most Critical Business Challenges You Face As A Business Leader. What Steps Do You Take To Overcome The Roadblocks That You Encounter?

We Face Many Day-To-Day Challenges To Sustain Ourselves In This Highly Competitive Industry. With India Having A Diverse Culture And People From Each State Having Their Own Different Sets Of Needs, One Of The Primary Challenges That We Face Is To Design A Product That Meets The Needs Of A Mass Audience. To Overcome This Challenge, We Do A Lot Of Market Research And Analysis In Order To Choose The Right Product For Our Industry. We Also Face A Wide Range Of Problems In Terms Of Employee Management, Finance Management, Timely Deliveries, And Many More. However, I Always Deal With Those Obstacles Very Calmly And With Lots Of Patience Which Helps Me Take The Right Decision. I Never Make Any Decisions In A Hurry Or Under Pressure As I Believe That Any Decisions Made Under Pressure Will Always Ruin The Work Instead Of Solving It.

What Are Some Of The Most Significant Milestones That You Have Achieved Throughout Your Professional Journey? What Has Been Your Success Mantra? Any Advice For Young Women And Girls Who Also Aspire To Become Business Leaders And Entrepreneurs In The Future?

For Me, Starting And Successfully Running A Fashion Brand Is Itself A Significant Milestone, As It Was My Childhood Dream To Start A Business In The Fashion Industry. I Have Always Been Passionate About Fashion, And Juniper Fashion Being Recognized As One Of The Fastest-Growing And Acknowledgeable Ethnic Wear Brand Was A Huge Milestone For Me. Since The Beginning, Dedication And Hunger To Achieve Have Always Been My Success Mantra, Which Automatically Motivates Me To Attain My Goal.

"The Underlying Idea Behind Starting Juniper Fashion Was To Create Unique And Innovative Clothing And Accessories That Meet The Needs And Preferences Of Customers" 

The Advice I Would Like To Give To Young Women Is To Speak Up For Themselves. You Need To Learn To Step Up And Speak Up For Yourself. Never Hesitate To Take Credit For Your Work Because You Have To Take A Step To Be Successful. Always Own Your Power And Never Let Anyone Control You. Always Recognize Yourself As A Business Leader, Not A Businesswoman. Be Strong, Work Hard, And Never Give Up.
