Nothing could be truer for the women entrepreneurs of today who are chartering unknown territories unabashedly and fearlessly. Be it in ecommerce, education, investing, travel, fashion, retail, fitness, hiring, and anything and everything under the sun, they are proceeding with gumption and unbridled enthusiasm to change the world around them, make a difference with their ideas, seek solutions that have never been sought, fight diseases and social norms, run successful ventures and generate employment for many, and give rise to new sustainable ecosystems. Each of them is scripting her own success story in today’s new age world.
A similar kind of success story can be seen by shedding a light on the journey of Rosmin Kunnathottathil, a Female entrepreneur who is making a difference with her ideas by running a curated Lingerie online portal in India - TLSlingerie.com. Being a creative individual and passionate about designing, Rosmin started her sartorial journey from a very small age by designing her own clothes. Her mom and grand mom, experts in crochet, tatting and stitching were her first teachers in to the world of clothes. They had an eye for design which resulted in her sister and her always being among well clothed women. Following is her inner passion for design was a natural outcome of being raised in such an environment.
Rosmin opted to study Textiles along with other sciences in her grade 11 and has been involved in the trade of Garments ever since. She has 7 years of experience in the Textile, right up to her Post Graduation, which gave her an in-depth understanding of all the aspects of the garment trade, right from fiber through fabric, design, construction and finally the sale of garments.
Such an in-depth training in the trade of Garments was a stepping stone in her career and she started www.tlslingerie.com. She hopes that TLS will soon become the largest aggregator for a niche product, i.e., Ladies Lingerie. Currently TLS has 10 Brands, and counting. Being an aggregator, TLS showcases all that is offered by a particular brand. So when you find your favorite brand at TLS, you don’t have to worry about will TLS have your particular size in the style that you want. If the brand has it, TLS has it too! Being from the garment background has helped her to contribute some innovative offerings at TLS like the Trousseau Gift Pack, which is a unique concept of TLS, where they offer multiple pieces of one brand to the customers, at a discounted rate. Such an offering is not available with any other site. It is these constant innovations that keep TLS on a higher platform than its competitors.
According to Rosmin, handling a lingerie brand in a country like India has been a difficult journey for her. When it comes to Lingerie women don’t feel confident in expressing their choices. Selling Lingerie is still a Hush-Hush affair in India, not only women even men feel shy to buy Lingerie for their spouses. She was aware about this scenario in India, but her only endeavor was to break the stereotypes and provide women an alternative to pamper themselves by spending on their favorite outfit, hence TLS came into existence. As is the case of any journey, achieving ones dreams too is marked with the unknown, unexpected dangers at every bend. One needs to have a clear plan of action to clear all these hurdles.
