It all started back in early 2020 during the peak of the COVID19 pandemic. At that time, a lock down was enforced in Oman, and the vast majority were preparing for EID occasion. The malls and boutiques were all closed.
My younger sister came with an idea and said: we are all in lockdown, and all are not able to do physical shopping, so why not we open an Instagram shop like the other online shops who were all over the place at that time?!
I supported the idea. We then started brainstorming about what can we offer to Omanis differently than the rest. Since it was Eid, we saw a huge gap in the market for quality shoes and bags, so we decided that these items would be most needed to complete the EID look.
To do that, and to differentiate ourselves, we started searching for suppliers that not only sell quality shoes & bags but can also deliver them to us as fast as possible.
We knew that getting the items to our customers fast enough would make us reliable and trustworthy.
We created our Instagram shop, and started posting pictures of the products immediately.
Days later; things started rolling, someone contacted us by a DM to buy a shoe we listed in our Instagram page. Although the shoe was not in stock, she didn’t mind pre-ordering it in advance !!
For us, this moment was the turning key. We knew the online shopping experience in Oman has changed forever. We we wouldn’t imagine for a second that a person you never met, would transfer money in advance to buy something that is not in stock, and then wait for it. It was magical.
So, who is Halya
We are always get asked this question. We believe Halya can be anyone of us; can be you, can be my sister, or can be the girl next door. This is because Halya is so passionate about fashion, about beauty and yet, she never get enough.
