Shikha Khemka, Founder at Vanity Unapologetiq
Great Companies: How did you get your idea or concept for the business?
Shikha Khemka: I was into clothing from a very young age. I enjoyed the idea of experimenting with new clothes and making something new and distinctive out of it. I was continuously asked by my friends and known ones for advice about the same but I never thought of styling as a profession to take up. It later clicked to me that I can use my passion to help others and create a name for myself. Three years ago, vanity unapologetic was made.
