Gakhar is a new fashion brand which aims to sell high quality clothing items which are sleek and stylish whatever the occasion, but at a reasonable and affordable price. Gakhar will create clothes which aren’t just based on the latest trends and go out of style before the following season; they will be classy and timeless.
The Team at Gakhar believe that if an item is stylish, it will always look good and be wearable, whereas with trends the clothes aren’t always stylish and have limited wearability.
The name Gakhar comes from an old tribe which ruled over parts of the ancient world (Ancient Persia) and the current South Asia. The Gakhar tribe members were natural leaders or warriors, and therefore were well respected, independent, fierce and loyal. The leaders always dressed in style and spared no expense when it came to showcasing their luxurious and high class lifestyle. Despite their appreciation for the finer things in life, the Gakhar tribe members were also active in giving back and looking after those who lived on the land they ruled over.
The tiger is the brand mascot for Gakhar as its qualities are synonymous to the Gakhar tribe and their leaders. Tigers, like Gakhar members, are fierce and independent, and are rulers of their territory.
Gakhar plans to use British manufacturers where possible to support the local trade and to reduce the carbon footprint. As well as this the company will aim to source material from as close as possible to the manufacturers we use as an attempt to reduce our carbon footprint.
Gakhar also aims to introduce local internships to re-invest into the future of the country. This will also allow us to help people gain valuable experience in the fashion industry and enable them to develop their careers in the field.
Gakhar will be expanding its collection as soon as possible, with the ambition of having a fashion show as soon as possible. They will also expand into the female market to widen their market, they will also be expanding across different social media sites where you can expect us to show you the best places to eat, holiday and just have fun, as well as health and beauty tips. This expansion also includes blogging and vlogging via our blog page and youtube. It will allow us to interact with the general population much more easily and take on more feedback.
Gakhar also plans to liaise with other brands for collaborations to increase their exposure and work with bloggers and known individuals to help spread their name.
Humzah Arun Khan (Project creator) is 26years old. Arun says “I was born with moderate/severe hearing loss and have used this as a determination to succeed in life. I have completed my education to a degree level, achieving a 1st Class Honours, so I know my capabilities and that I definitely have the ability to succeed regardless of my disability. I’m currently in the process of launching my clothing company – Gakhar. I have always had an interest in Fashion and have decided to take my passion and make a mark in the field. I have had some exposure to the field of fashion, allowing me to use what I have seen and learnt to help ensure that Gakhar is only a success. I really hope that you are able to see my passion and determination for the brand and are able to donate.”
Arun Khan has started a crowdfunding campaign with a goal of raising £10,000 to launch a brand new apparel company. A large portion of the pledges will be spent on stock, allowing them to supply all of you supportive people with clothing without any disappointments. Some of the funds will also be used for marketing to increase awareness and on equipment which will help in the smooth day to day running of Gakhar. The remainder of the funds will be spent on taking the brand forward.
The project vision is to start with a collection of clothes which are versatile. The colours will be rich and the cuts will be sleek and fitted giving a clean appearance. Despite the items being fitted they aim to include the larger sizes and will work actively to ensure that the clothing items are adaptable and will look good regardless of size.
Backers have several prize tiers and categories to choose from, but you’ve got to be quick!
