Our Story

Inspired by Work/Life Balance, KNYA is derived from the Sanskrit word ‘Panchakanya’ which stands for a group of five iconic heroines of the Hindu epics, whose names when recited are believed to dispel sin - they are Ahalya, Draupadi, Kunti, Tara and Mandodari. Portraying qualities of an ideal woman, KNYA stands for such qualities and represents the mutifaceted roles performed by a woman in the modern world.



Founder & CEO Vanshika Choudhary started working on the concept of KNYA while she was pursuing her undergraduate education at Lasalle College of the Arts in Singapore. Watching women around her carry every role beautifully, she was convinced that women hold within themselves a strong ability to perform various life roles with ease. To meet the ever-growing demand of workwear, Vanshika launched KNYA in 2017 to help women seamlessly transition their roles while feeling and looking their best. We create rich experiences that connect with her wherever she is, inspire her style and simplify her choices.


Our clothing fits every aspect of your day. At KNYA we’re not big on trends. We want you to wear our pieces for years, even decades, to come. That’s why each piece is made with integrity and kindness from the highest quality materials. We obsessively check every neckline and skirt hem a million times to make you feel and look confident.
