The brand has also announced their expansion and specialization plans, including their re-entry into the women’s business wear segment as part of their centenary year celebration.
Hundered year old fashion brand P N RAO, which was born in 1923, recently announced the marking of its centenary year milestone. With 5 branches in the city and 2 in Chennai, the brand is now all set to re-enter the women’s business wear segment.
Speaking at a press conference Machender Pishe, Chandramohan Pishe, Naveen Pishe and Ketan Pishe – Partners of P N RAO said, “P N RAO has contributed immensely to the Indian retail industry and built a unique reputation of its own as an iconic made in India brand”.
Ketan Pishe, Partner, P N RAO, said “From a humble beginning, the brand has grown along with the city and holds a very special place in the hearts of Bengalureans and Chennaiites. Celebrating 100 years is a big milestone for us which speaks volumes about our brand and our vision and mission. While we are committed to offering the finest apparels to our customers and understand our client’s psyche, we are constantly evaluating ways and means to raise the bar and expand our customer base.”
P N RAO started as a ladies tailoring brand, dressing up the British ladies in the pre-Independence days. Post-Independence, the founder’s eldest son P N Panduranga Rao learnt the art of gents pattern making which led to the brand branching off into men’s wear.
“P N RAO has built one of the largest bespoke tailoring units on the outskirts of Bengaluru which is completely solar powered which demonstrates our commitment to the environment and clean and safe and hygienic manufacturing of our apparels”, added Naveen Pishe, Partner, P N RAO.
With its intention of re-entry into the women’s wear business clothing, the brand will round up into a holistic fashion wear brand for both men and women.
On the special occasion, the brand also announced their future strategies of further expansion and specializations.
