“The things you are passionate about are not random, they are your callings!”
If you are passionate about something, it does not matter whether you have an official degree or not.
Meet Miku Kumar who is a renowned fashion designer in Delhi.
Born in Rajasthan and brought up in West Bengal, Miku did her economics honours from Kirori Mal College, Delhi University before entering into the fashion business.
Being very passionate about designing, Miku started her venture with a very small amount of capital. She started it with Rs 5000 and no other financial support.
Miku started putting her innovation and ideas into her garments and operated from a very small boutique in Ramprastha colony of Ghaziabad. With her dedication and persistence efforts, Miku added very good clientele for her designer clothes.
Miku held her first fashion exhibition at Vivaha followed by her first big show at India runway week. Her work has featured in magazines like La-fiesta, East Delhi newspapers, wedding magazines and many more.
Everything was going great. However, God had other plans.
In the year when the rains crossed the highest mark in Delhi and the roads were flooding, Miku’s basement boutique was filled with a sudden gush of water to 9 ft watermark and all her efforts of 5 years seemed to have just washed away.
But Miku’s conviction and deep belief in God helped her to overcome all obstacles. Miku started again in just four days at a location just above the basement.
There was no stopping after that and she opened her first flagship store in Yojna Vihar, Delhi. In the five years of its operation, the brand has reached the clientele of all areas of Delhi from Gurgaon to Punjabi Bagh, from south to north.
On the brand Instagram and Facebook page, you can see many celebrities wearing her designer clothes.
Beginning with a small-scale Miku kept on exploring more and in few years she nourished her talent and turned into one of the famous fashion designers in Delhi.
Miku has gone through various challenges but she never gave up and that’s what makes her a Woman of Courage.
When asked about her success mantra, Miku says “Hard work, persistent efforts and God’s grace are three things with which one can never fail”
Due to the recent sealing happening in Delhi, her Yojna Vihar store and factory stands sealed but with her success mantra, in a record time of 30 days she renovated a new store and inaugurated again at 121 Priya enclave.
Today Mikukumar is a name in every household on most parts of Delhi, especially east Delhi and behind the brand; you will see the lady dressed simplest and work hardest standing with her pride – her team.
Miku is truly a Woman of Courage because when her life changed to be harder, she changed herself to be stronger.
