About Us

Company Profile

In 1999, Mr. Ravi Modi created a family business that re-invented men’s ethnic wear category. During the course of its evolution, it became synonymous with wedding wear. A one stop store for grooms and men of the family for functions big and small. As more and more variety was added to the range, the brand became popular for occasion wear - from weddings to festivals, Rakhi to Roka. Today Manyavar is India’s leading Celebration Wear brand for men.

Timeless and iconic attires have cemented its reputation across the world owning retail space of 4,50,000 sq. feet - 450+ stores including 60 flagship and 12 international stores across 173 cities in India, U.S.A, Bangladesh, Nepal & U.A.E.

Manyavar dress the world’s elite with finest Indian elegance. The collections include exquisite Sherwanis, fine Indo Westerns, royal Band Galas, Jackets, Kurtas and matching accessories for life’s celebrations. Kid’s Ethnic and Fusion wear are also on offer.

In the year 2016 celebration wear for women, Mohey was launched. The label is backed by years of collective experience, values and passion. Handpicked Lehengas, Sarees, Suits and Gowns are now available at 50+ Mohey stores. Mohey is out to reach 5,00,000 sq. ft. of retail space across India and abroad by 2020. Whatever the occasion, culture or geography – now Mohey too, shall join the celebration.
