While we make our presence felt in GT, MT and other Large format stores this year we would also be launching exclusive brand outlets in near future”.

The acceptance of the brand by consumers online in such a short time presents multiple growth possibilities in other formats. We have an opportunity to create a truly compelling Omni-channel offering for our customers who value the brand ethos of Fashion that thinks.”
