Hey gang! Yeah, I’m calling you gang. Today is pretty exciting for me! I’m going to be reviewing my first ever brand! eShakti approached me about a month ago and asked if I would be interested in receiving an item of their clothing to wear and review on the blog. Not one to ever turn down something free I obliged. 🙂 Lucky me, the dress I chose arrived yesterday afternoon! But more on that tomorrow. Today I’ll be reviewing the brand and my overall experience with them.
When Jane from eShakti contacted me at the beginning of November I was elated! The deal was they would send me an item of my choice to keep and review for the blog if I so chose but I also had the option to review the brand, their philosophy, and policies. That’s what I’ll be doing today.
Jane explained their mission statement like this:
“eShakti is a fresh concept in custom clothing. We believe that all women have the right to wear affordable fashion. What began as a small website offering basic cottons and modestly embellished pieces has grown into an international company offering fashionable custom clothing. eShakti offers both design and fit customization for women size 0 through 36. This is the heart of our business.”
Shakti means power in Sanskrit. Internet + Shakti=eShakti! Cool, huh?!
Once I read this I was sold. One of my secret dreams is to design a line of plus-size clothing that is actually cute! So many times brands only cater to sizes 0-12 while the other sizes must look elsewhere (and try a lot harder) to find fashionable clothing. The amazing thing about eShakti is that every. single. item on their website comes in sizes 0-36. If that doesn’t suit you then you can have something completely customized to your measurements. You can tailor the length, neckline, sleeves, and even take away pockets or embellishments if you want. (Though pockets on anything pretty much rules.)
They don’t keep a warehouse of items since each of their orders are cut to order, which is why shipping may take a few days longer than most brands (about 2 weeks). With each order a height measurement is required to ensure a truer fit.
eShakti is incredibly customer centered. The heart of the brand is putting each and every woman, no matter what size, into a beautiful garment. This is the number one reason I decided to accept their review.
So you should definitely check them out if you’re looking for something catered just to you. 🙂
Check back tomorrow for a product review! It’s going to be fun!
