Reliance Brands Limited (RBL) has joined hands with Indian designer Anamika Khanna to own and develop the brand AK-OK.

The partnership is a 60:40 joint venture (either by itself and/or through its affiliates) between RBL and Khanna. Khanna will continue to lead the creative direction of the brand as Creative Director.

Speaking on the partnership, Isha Ambani, Director, Reliance
Retail Ventures Ltd said, "The partnership with Anamika Khanna pivots around our recognition of homegrown talent’s growing popularity and appeal, both in India and globally. Known for her eponymous label, Anamika Khanna is well recognised for encapsulating India’s rich craft in global contours. We are excited to partner with Anamika’s AK-OK brand journey right from its early days and present a unique design philosophy to Indian and global consumers".

AK-OK was born at a time when Khanna was going through a deeply personal crisis and the name was taken from a phrase that her sons Viraj and Vishesh always used to tell her, "Don’t worry, everything will be AK-OK".
