Couture Rani is founded by Gina Mathew after identifying a growing demand for high-end traditional apparel by South Asians living outside of the Indian subcontinent and those interested in Indian fashion and culture. “Couture Rani is unique in that it will allow shoppers to order a custom made, individually tailored piece rather than purchasing from a selection of pre-made stock. ”
