A colorful journey to the jewelry world
Before being a successful and esteemed woman in fashion, Ranjana Khan was one of those Indian girls wanting a different life than the norm of being tied into an arranged marriage. She successfully avoided that destiny, and made a life of her own as a model in New York at age 24. She later on found herself working in collaboration with famous and well-known fashion houses like Valentino, Alexander McQueen, Armani, Lanvin, and Balenciaga. She was responsible for the many gorgeous accessories these fashion house launch or style their clothes with.
She was long married when she decide to launch her very own brand and collection in 2008, a promising label that she named after herself. While fashion had been an integral part of her life, it was when she started her own brand that she really found her identity in the industry. Now she is an epitomy of a strong Indian woman who made something out of a life she formerly didn’t want, a successful woman who knows her accessories very well.
Even during the world’s financial crisis during the brand launch, Ranjana Khan immediately got the attention of jewelry lovers and non-lovers alike. How? It was because of then First Lady Michelle Obama’s appearance at a state dinner with the Prime Minister of India, wearing jewelry from Ranjana Khan. From then on, the journey has been all uphill for the brand.
Eclectic, fabulous and magnificent
Ranjana Khan makes pieces for the unconventional women—those who want to be seen and be noticed immediately, those who are clever in fashion, those who are unconventional, and those who want to make great impact by having a timeless fashion sense. All these are connected and rooted to the designer’s own personal style, hence, her ability to come up with gorgeously eclectic pieces.
The bold pieces of the brand aren’t only special because of their looks, but their creation process as well. Materials used for the jewelry are not ones you are used to—they are often unusual and very rare. A vital part of the design process is the perfect matching and combination of the materials too, to come up with the flamboyant piece the brand is always going for. From semi-precious stones, burnt crystals, and snake skin to vintage beads, vintage coins, and feathers, Ranjana Khan is sure to impress with a final jaw-dropping piece.
Of course Indian heritage can be seen and celebrated through the brand’s pieces, depicting the rich history of the country and Ranjana’s various travels through glamorous jewelry. While the style of the brand is totally immaculate, Ranjana Khan ensures that their pieces are still within a reasonable price range. The huge and attention-seeking pieces in the brand’s collection definitely gives clients their money’s worth, especially as they add a magnificent effect to an outfit.
Today and beyond
Today, the brand’s beautiful pieces are celebrated by lot of women around the world, some of whom happens to be among the most famous people on the planet. Many of the ribbon embellished earrings, cuff bracelets with embroidered beads, statement necklaces and chandelier earrings of Ranjana Khan have been worm by A-list women, including Beyoncé, Michelle Obama, Iris Apfel, Taylor Swift, among others. Many physical and online retailers carry their pieces as well, like Kirna Zabete, Bergdorf Goodman, and Moda Operandi. Such success led the brand to finally launch a bridal collection in 2014, another successful line that carries the true Ranjana Khan mark.
With the major success that her brand has reached, Ranjana still has a lot of plans for the expansion and further fame of the brand. According to her, she has recently adapted the “go big or go home” motto, which she used as an inspiration in designing the spring 2018 collection of the brand. All pieces in that collected are in line with the theme “big, bright, and bold,” truly exuding the glamour, flamboyance and fabulousness that Ranjana Khan is all about.
