There is one thing that gives us the confidence to walk into a room that is filled with judgemental people: our dressing sense. Well, this may have been exaggerated but the truth is that everyone feels good and confident while wearing good clothes. That is the power of fashion.
When the category of fashion is dealt with in the right way then it can do wonders for every person, including the team behind it. No one would have thought that the fashion industry would become profitable. It did and all the credit goes to the brains behind it.
One such brand that is changing the way the fashion industry works is Bhane. Bhane is a brand that looks sophisticated and seems to be targeting people with heavy pockets. The regular customers of the brand would tell you otherwise except for the fact that the brand is sophisticated.
The Delhi-based fashion brand was founded in 2012 by Anand Ahuja. The name of the brand translates to, “The Rising Sun” in Gurmukhi, a language that is spoken by Sikhs.
The brand targets urban youth by centralizing around the objective of retaining its humility.

The brand is managed by Anand Ahuja. He serves as the Managing Director of the fashion brand.
He was born on July 07, 1983, in New Delhi to a businessman, Sunil Ahuja, and a homemaker, Beena Ahuja. He has three siblings- two brothers and a sister. His brothers are named Anant Ahuja & Amit Ahuja and his sister is named Priyadarshini Ahuja.
Despite being from a wealthy background, he completed his education till post-graduation before starting his business. He did his schooling from a Delhi-based school called, “American Embassy School”. He, later on, pursued a postgraduate degree in business from Wharton School of University, Pennsylvania.
