Who Are You And How Are You Into What You Do?
I’m Divya Agarwal and my venture which started in 2006 is called D’Desire. I started it to keep myself occupied in the free time that I had post marriage.

Tell Us About Your D’Desire Journey
An Interior Designer by qualification, I started to become an architect but realized that to me the beauty of the building was more important than the building itself. The Interior designing practice then turned into Beauty Consultation. This widened my area of interest in creativity and thus turned my work mode into accessorizing a person. Being associated with one of the leading brands in the world, i.e. HINDUSTAN UNILEVER, was a platform for me to grow as a person and a blessing to learn more.
I started with regular skincare, personal care, and professional makeup techniques, and basic daily healthcare. Working with HULN gave me opportunities in conducting many sessions for beauty, skin, and makeup for individuals, small and large groups. Being indulged in networking with so many different mindsets, gave me an observation that every individual has a desire to become beautiful externally or internally. So, I came up with the idea of accessorizing a person. I started designing Indo Western jewelry with semi-precious and precious beads. A piece of jewelry lights up a woman’s aura.
D’DESIRE started with the zeal to fulfill all desires out of basic and occasional gifting needs. D’DESIRE originated from the thought of desire to have anything. Under this brand, we design, manufacture, and curate a variety of products for gifting and self-use in all the sectors. My journey till now has been like the most precious stone, close to my heart and gracious. Honesty and dignity are what I plan to return with more of my zeal to support and guide all.

My Winning Stree Moment was when I was chosen by divine powers to be a supporting and guiding source for all those women who are waiting for something magical to happen. Who awaits that one little push of motivation and then come out of their comfort shells to show their worth to the world.
