REVIEW: I Know Studio

I Know Studio - brainchild of Timsy & Siddharth is the only affordable designer online shopping studio. Since they create their own pieces, the collection reflects their taste i.e. contemporary, fusion and wearable. 

Neatly Organized
I Know Studio has well segregated sections for men and women. They have arranged their clothing neatly under each category as Jackets, Shirts, Kurtas and Trousers for men and Jackets, Shirts and Tops, Trousers and Dresses for women. Such an assortment makes browsing and purchase decision very easy. Brownie points for the assortment!

Whether you lure over colours or stick to the basics or like ethnic, fusion or contemporary, the studio has to offer it all! I love the collection for women- check this dresstrouser and jacket and I would definitely buy this waistcoat and shirt to gift it to my guy. Though they do not often have new stock coming in but the pattern, cut and detailing of every garment is different and unique. For men, they have amazing silk kurtas at unimaginable prices. 

I like that they have Cash on Delivery to save girls like me from severe debt. 

Delivery and Returns
They deliver between Monday -Saturday(excluding bank holidays) in 3-4 days. It generally reaches on the forth day after the order is placed and the returns are reviewed and honoured up to 15 days from the date of order delivered. 

Very affordable! It starts at 1,299INR and goes till 3,199INR for men and women. The variety they offer at the price is very reasonable. 

Disclamier: I have been compensated for this review. If you disagree or have different views on the same then feel free to comment, nicely!
