About Shalini James – Mantra’s Master Strategist
The story of Mantra begins with Shalini James, founder and owner of this fast-growing fashion boutique in Cochin. Shalini James graduated from India’s premier fashion institute, The National Institute of Fashion Technology (NIFT), Chennai. Mantra was born in 2003, at a time when the boutique business model was relatively new to the apparel market in Kerala. Nearly a decade later, Shalini James’ entrepreneurial venture, Mantra, has not only opened multiple outlets in Kerala, it is also looked upon as a trusted boutique brand amidst the boutique rush in different parts of the state.
Shalini James has put in place a thoroughly standardized production cycle at Mantra - the fabric that goes into every dress material is carefully sourced from different parts of India before they are transported to the manufacturing hub, where an expert team of workers and artisans convert the design into a finished garment. A consistent level of high quality is the mantra that Shalini James incorporates on every garment available here.
Over the years, Shalini James has been able to seamlessly handle a growing employee base and changing customer tastes. An entrepreneur who is the epitome of change management, Shalini James has always embraced change and has passed on the baton of change to her employees, when she deemed it absolutely necessary.
