Managing Director, Contemporary Connect
An entrepreneur majoring in Luxury Brand Management, Meher Gupta is successfully running her firm, Contemporary Connect & is striving hard to expand her reach not only across India but to the ever-expanding network of the world. Meher is a young woman with an opinionated voice, an open mind, & a trove of skills and her achievements so far are worth-noting. Early 2008, Meher established a name for herself in the sport of golf; she was placed nationally at top five in the under eighteen category. Along with her thriving interest & flair in the majestic sport, Meher has been a fashion maven too. From her buoyant sense of style to her accolades of walking the ramp for Amrapali Jewels, this boss lady has strong associates with fashion. After her undergrad in Corporate Law and Marketing from Lanchester University, United Kingdom, Meher embarked on her journey to explore her knack in the Brand Management sector. Working with Coca Cola, she realized that her direction lies in niche markets rather than mass market and decided to pursue masters in Luxury Brand Management from European Business School, London. Working with companies like Michael Kors, Jimmy Choo, and Bottega Veneta, the idea for Contemporary Connect was born. Working with Quintessentially and Genesis gave her a sense that the scope for growth of companies in India was huge; all they needed was a guiding hand and a 360-degree approach. Initiated in 2014, Meher’s Contemporary Connect has now established itself as a one-stop solution for anything a luxury brand may need, from vendor management to marketing to collaborations as well as the placements of international brands in India. In the past years, she & her company has gathered a nifty experience while working with some of the most esteemed labels & brands across various luxury segments nationally as well as internationally. Collaborations with L’opera, Kukoon the Label, Logix Group, Manish Arora for his fashion show in Paris, private air charter company Imperial Air, and gourmet grocers IRIIS Food are only some of their testimonies. They have an International partner agency, Totem Fashion, whom they help by establishing & promoting their clients in placements in the Indian market. With her badass outlook & relentless skills, Meher Gupta continues to carve out an upward trajectory for herself & her firm, Contemporary Connect.
