“I long to give the world a peek into the inner sparkle of every girl.”
My adventure began as a young girl, spinning to the sounds of flamenco. I met myself in the swirls, curious about both sides of my heritage––the playfulness of my Spanish-Andalusian roots and the artistry of my Indian legacy.
My hand gestures were just as important in telling a story as the music was to my feet. My fingers rippled like a flower opening and closing, giving the world a peek into its delicate strength and unrivaled beauty. It was in these moments that something whispered to my free-spirited, bohemian soul.
my inner radiance.
my inner glow.
my inner spark.
Upon the birth of my child, I was inspired to share these joyful experiences, blended with my beautiful new world as a mother. This inner radiance manifested itself into a collection of whimsical, handmade dresses that embodied the souls of courageous and confident women. Created specifically for the mothers who believe in the importance of teaching their children to explore, to be pioneers and to live with purpose, Cheeni clothing aspires to make forever memories (wash after wash), be comfortable and possess the most beautiful designs, all while protecting the environment and helping a charitable cause. Through this wholesome and unbreakable love for my daughter, the planet and all our children, I hope to inspire this inner radiance in each and every one of you.

“A flower and a girl hold common mysteries––the unique power to
thrill and beguile, uplift and ground, stun and center, amuse and enlighten.”
A girl the moon chases and the stars wish for. A wild child with an adventurous soul that dances with the sun. A free spirit, a beautiful mind and a boundless heart that isn’t meant to be tamed. Not one to run away from adventure, she looks the unknown in the eye and gives it a wink. And just like the vibrant, mesmerising colors that effortlessly twirl on, she, too, freely flutters, soaking up her radiant glow from the languages that whisper to her and the cultures that caress her. Because while her beauty may be delicate, it is her magic that fuels dreams and brings to life the possibility of everything.
“No longer do we use our dreams for empowerment as dress rehearsals for the future.”
