This week as Kanabis is turning 3, we are both excited and nostalgic. We are reminded of the journey starting from the goosebumps of 7th April 2015- our debut launch at Hotel Ashok in Delhi, to the highs and lows, the ecstatic, and the stressful moments thereafter…3 years on.
Looking back we get emotional, proud and motivated to stretch ourselves more and meet even bigger ambitions.
We started with 22 styles and have launched over 100 new styles since inception. From wedges to sneakers, to strappy sandals to brogues, we have come a long way and have always been on point with fashion trends. From the cool floral prints to the ginghams block heels we had so much fun designing shoes, naming them and bringing them to market.
We received so much love from our customers. It truly makes our day when we receive shoe-selfies and heartfelt feedback (check out our fanbook). A highlight of the year was when Jacqueline Fernandez was spotted wearing our tassel tales sandals. Many celebs likes of Adah Sharma, Ayesha Takia, Sana Khan, Payal Rohtagi, Aanchal Munjal, Hina Khan in Big Boss have been wearing Kanabis & supporting us.
A pleasant surprise that came our way was the Digital Women’s award for e-commerce by Shethepeople. We hadn’t gotten over this joyous news that we received another award from Peta for the Most Compassionate Business. These shiny trophies grace our new office cabin encouraging us to keep up our A game. The Kanabis family also expanded and we felt a new wave of motivation as new members came in with new ideas, aspirations and experience.
Amidst our daily assignments, one of the milestone was being part of Amazon India Fashion Week AW’18 and our shoes rocked the ramp for designers Abhi Singh & Aarti Vijaygupta.
These fabulous three years bring us a big smile and bigger dreams. We have lots more in store for this year. Thank you all for being a part of our journey as customers, supporters, followers, admirers, well-wishers and believers.
Stay tuned for more stories from our bright and beautiful shoe-world!
