Mina is the creative mind behind the fashion companies City Goddess, Goddiva and TradeGala. Trained as a fashion designer with some of the biggest names in the industry, she later went on to co-found City Goddess in 2003, the wholesale fashion brand which has become one of the most respected wholesale evening wear suppliers in the UK. Building on the company's success, Mina designed and launched the Goddiva brand in 2009 as an independent B2C fashion label, and continues to have a hand in every aspect of the management and design of this successful business. Her constant strive for new innovations led her and her business partner Kuganeswaran Thangarajah to launch TradeGala in 2019 - the B2B online marketplace, revolutionising wholesale fashion.
Kugan draws on his wide experience in manufacturing and business to contribute to the success of his fashion empire, including City Goddess, Goddiva & TradeGala. By forging strong industry relationships and a streamlined infrastructure, City Goddess and Goddiva are able to stay ahead of the game, picking up on the latest trends as soon as they appear, and going from original design to production in as little as a week. TradeGala is the fulfilment of a dream to bring the concept of a user-friendly marketplace platform to wholesale fashion, pioneering the use of e-commerce technology to modernise the industry. Combining focused leadership and a strong team who are passionate about the industry, Kugan has helped transform the concept of fashion supply and purchasing, bringing it inline with the technological innovations available today.
