Once Upon a Trunk is an online e-commerce shopping portal with various brands and designers on board. It was founded in February, 2015 by the sister duo Saanchi and Shivaani Jain to provide a different platform for shopping for shopoholics, it has come a long way with a collaboration with over 100 top notch premium designers at affordable prices.

Believing in revolutionizing fashion with ease, their U.S.P lies with offline shopping as personalized styling services at your doorstep, as per your whims and wishes.
In conversation with Guardian 20, the Jain sister’s Saanchi and Shivaani Jain spoke about the concept and the idea behind Once Upon a trunk, and told about how it is different from other online portals, Saanchi says, “We thought of making life easier for all the women on the go! We know the pain of finding the perfect outfit for an occasion too well. If there ever were to be a befitting exhibit of what happens at the end of a real-life fairytale, it’d probably come enveloped in a carry-on, or in our case for measured eccentricity, a bespoke trunk. Introducing to you, the delicately magical nuances of life with “Once Upon A Trunk”. With each Trunk, the stylist will get better at zeroing in on the user’s specific tastes and fit. And just like a fairytale; magically and effortlessly, we fulfil the client’s fashion needs. Because life is not perfect, but your outfit can be!”
The one remarkable thing about this online portal is their at-home trunk service. This experience is straight forward and convenient with their stylist just a click away. All you have to do is sign up online, set up a phone conversation with one of their stylists, and a 30- to 40-pound box will arrive on your front door, packed with ensembles for the occasion. The client tries the items on, tells the stylist what she likes, and sends the rest back.
They aim to achieve comfort for their customers with home shopping facility. Intended to spread across all metropolitan cities, they have almost reached the pinnacle by planning to set up their own brand for trunks & apparel clothing. Their clothing line aims to produce refined quality products with international designs and not to replicate anything seen in the Indian market.
