Nine Maternity Wear – Comfortable and Stylish Merchandise For Pregnant Women
Nine Maternity Wear is a startup by a women and for women. It is solving the problem which most of the expecting women face, compromising between style and size.
Priya Bhave the creative soul behind the brand is one person to watch out for, a mother of two wonderful sons. She is full of enthusiasm and curiosity with an unpretentious and vivacious personality. She shares her journey with us today. She feels Nine has a very deep relation with a woman’s heart, the whole transformation from a woman to mother is magical. That is the reason she choose it to be named as Nine Maternity Wear. It is the combined effort of the creative designers, merchandisers, the production team, and of course the constant support of my family.
How did you come up with the idea of creating your own store?
My Motherhood has been an inspiration behind Nine Maternity Wear. When I was blessed with the first child, there were lot of changes which i could feel in myself, it was a life changing experience. Back then maternity wears were not available other than at international brand shops located at distant places. I was lucky to able to make my clothing within my factory but i could also visualize the problem which most of the women would face. Being from fashion industry it was difficult to compromise on clothes sometimes by choosing just an extra large size of whatever you liked which ill-fitted on other parts of the body. I never stopped thinking on introducing a brand on maternity wear but the question was when. Now the time is right and the market looks very promising for it.
What is so unique about your online store?
Post introducing the brand our clothing should put a proud smile on their face; celebrate their pregnancy as they carry the new bundle of joy within them. Surprisingly our apparel has been picked up by non pregnant women as well which is a great delight for us. Speaking of dreams, In future I would like to see exquisitely designed stores for the mom to be, she should be able to have a comfortable experience in the stores. Obviously I wish the brand to grow much more popular by then. We also have plans to diversify into more product range such as lingerie, shoes and skin care products.
