Let us introduce ourselves

6Degree is India's leading fashion business platform founded in 2014 by Amit Bhardwaj and Nikhil Hegde. There was a gap in the fashion business space that Amit and Nikhil set out to bridge – the absence of a platform that unifies the fashion industry. Thus, 6Degree emerged. A one stop shop for people in the fashion industry for all fashion business needs.
The name 6Degree is inspired from the 6 Degrees of Separation Theory that says any two people in the world can be linked in 6 steps. 6Degree aims to apply that theory in the fashion world linking people from various areas under one platform and become the digital backbone of the industry.

Fashion is the heart and soul of everything we do

Every member of the team at 6Degree is passionate about the fashion industry in their own unique way and everyone have their own role to play. We love what we do and that shows when we have happy clients come back for more business. We love being a part of a fashion designers’ journey, watching them grow and contributing our bit to that growth. We as a team have one thing in common - love for fashion and business, & that’s what makes us who we are.
