Zainul Mistry is unlike anyone else in the industry that I have encountered. He excels in business processes (such as: clear communication, knowing his industry, quick turn-around, etc.) His entrepreneurial spirit is evident and he was an absolute pleasure to work with. The reason I’m even writing this is because of a quality that sets him apart from all the rest- he genuinely cares! He cares about your ideas, your product, and most importantly he cares about his clients. He is an expert at what he does and one of the kindest people I’ve ever interacted with. That alone is the reason I will never take my business to anyone else.
The Accessory Consultant allowed me to give my husband a beautiful special gift for his birthday. Since the birth of our sons, he’s been saying he wants his name on his chain and a pendant. I couldn’t find anywhere that would be able to do it. Zainul was super responsive and literally allowed the idea of the pendant to come alive. My husband loved it.

TAC and I started working together when I first introduced my fashion jewelry line. It was a challenging and exciting time for me as my business was growing and the learning curve was steep and unforgiving. They were instrumental in every way imaginable and helped me work through the many challenges that I was facing at once – production, sourcing, trend forecasting, department store relationships, showroom relationships, even shipping issues. Throughout all the challenges that we faced together, they were always composed and professional. They also encouraged me to push my boundaries as a designer and helped me understand how to round out my collections. Even today I still find myself applying principles and engaging in practices that they introduced to me and I am proud to consider them good friends

We worked with Zainul Mistry for 3 years and he has changed our company. He introduced us to the US market and helped us to penetrate. Today we sell in more than 150 stores in the US. Zainul Mistry also helped us in product development, choosing the right materials and building a collection. He has the ability to understand the brand’s identity and develop on it.
I have worked with Zainul Mistry for over two years and could not have been where I am now without his expertise, resources, and energy. Despite logistical challenge-I lived in Europe for most of that time-Zainul Mistry helped me turn a few random earrings into a compelling collection that is now carried in speciality stores in the US and Europe. He played a key role in editing my line to make sure it is appealing to buyers and helped identify reliable sources and affordable contractors.
TAC has been by my side for over five years. Their taste level is brilliant, their ideas are brilliant, they are the hardest workers

Zainul Mistry has added so much to the offering at RR. I can basically say that our products wouldn’t look the way they do without him. He added so much knowledge to areas I basically had little experience in. I had a great idea but the product didn’t have the sophistication that was needed to deliver the full impact of my elegant design. My background was in corporate finance and marketing and he added an experienced merchandisers viewpoint. This is so invaluable when you want to make an impact with the buyer. Her background and experience give you that depth that most small companies don’t have. He is very easy to communicate with and always available to reach out to
