D2C Ecommerce, a homegrown multi-brand e-commerce platform has acquired Mumbai-based fashion jewelry brand ‘AccessHer’. Through this acquisition, D2C Ecommerce will expand its presence in the jewelry and accessories space and bolster the brand’s footprint by investing in newer categories, scaling D2C Ecommerce’s business, and expanding into global markets including the UK, the US, and Europe.
AccessHer was established in 2018 with the aim of curating jewelry and accessories for contemporary Indian women by Gaurav Babel and Reena Jain, a husband and wife duo. With an eye for quality and a passion for design, AccessHer has introduced products that appeal to young women between the ages of 20 and 35years for all her moods, looks, and occasions. From vintage traditional ensembles that you can wear to your BFF's wedding or a house puja to stylish statement jewelry for a party or a sparkling minimal office look. AccessHer has always been the first to present new trends on online marketplaces for its consumers.
With the festive season around the corner, jewelry is one of the fastest-growing categories in online marketplaces. AccessHer is well placed to capitalize on the upcoming Big Billion Days Sale and Great Indian Festival Sale across the leading online shopping platforms – Amazon and Flipkart. Currently, AccessHer has over 2000 products listed across various renowned e-commerce platforms such as - Amazon, Myntra, Meesho, and Nykaa Fashion and will now also be available on www.d2csale.com.

With a distinct focus on the ‘hair accessories’ category, AccessHer is eyeing a revenue of Rs 10 crore in FY 2022-23 from this category itself.
