Fashion Has Always Been All About You

India is turning fashionable, and what’s more, it is starting young. Unlike previous generations when only a select few included fashion in their daily choices, today’s world is one where almost every person is into fashion. Today’s fashion is not just about wearing trendy clothes but also the knowledge to accessorize and blend fashion with one’s own taste, all at the same time.

A leading fashion portal like Myntra cannot but be elated at this change. Anant Narayanan, CEO, Myntra & Jabong, in an interview with CNBC, said that fashion and lifestyle are undergoing a major transformation in recent times.

In fact, he went so far as to describe fashion as having emerged as a culture. The reasons for this, elaborated Ananth, was fashion becoming one of the best forms of self-expression; the modern Indian woman becoming aware about what she wants to do; and existing biases getting better. Making Myntra a daily habit for women was a task they had undertaken, shared Ananth.

All About You

What better example than Deepika Padukone’s All About You when it comes to a clothes brand created to give the wearer the freedom to actually wear what one wants, be it in the material that best suits the Indian weather, or having the choice of wearing western as well as Indian (which not many brands offer) and also being one of the most affordable brands in fashion, costing just between Rs 800-Rs 4000.

As Deepika Padukone shared in the same interview, when she initially thought of launching her own clothesline, it was to give expression to the girl inside. But her passion soon evolved into the idea of empowering girls and women, from age 15 to age 40, by giving them the right to find their preferred fashion within this brand.

Deepika said that fashion was an extension of a person’s personality and it truly came into fruition when one had the liberty to wear what they wanted to at home, work or any social setting without any peer pressure. Talking of her Spring-Summer collection launched recently, she said it had softer and lighter fabrics, lace, florals and pastels, with comfort being the key word. Deepika also emphasized that knowledge and acceptance of one’s own uniqueness is key and it is upto each one of us to mould it into our strength. Only then can a person drive out the irrelevant and embrace themselves.

All About You has also proved to be one of the top five women’s wear brands on Myntra, and among the top ten on Jabong, according to Ananth. The unique partnership of Deepika and Ananth, one an actor and the other a businessman, can be credited with the success that All About You has seen in the online retail space. By making the brand a lot more accessible to a larger audience, by endorsing simplicity as well as pizzazz, All About You has reduced the isolation that a lot of brands create by catering to specific trends and audiences. As Deepika has stated, it is all about exploring and embracing your true self which would in turn reflect in one’s style and clothing, the idea on which All About You is based on. As a matter of fact, Deepika based the idea of the brand based on her own mother’s elegant and relatable fashion which inspired her.

All About You has seen good growth in recent years. With a Year on Year growth of 150%, it’s no surprise that the brand is so hugely successful and will continue scaling higher in the foreseeable future.

No More Billing Queues At Roadster’s New Outlet

On March 17th 2017, Myntra opened its first offline retail store for its outdoor lifestyle brand Roadster, one of its bestsellers. The opening of this store lines up with Myntra’s ambition of employing technology to make fashion and lifestyle more accessible to the Indian mass.

The new Roadster store is opening at 100 Feet Road in Indiranagar, one of the very posh residential and commercial locality of Bengaluru. With a store size of 4000 square feet, this luxuriously huge store has been designed to engage customers with its appearance, ambience and use of technology.

Roadster

Inside the store is a video wall, with complete control to shopper by virtue of a touch interface, which will display every nooks and crannies of all Roadster products as well as provide a snippet of the latest fashion trends across the globe. To make things more interesting for the customer, a ‘Scan & Go’ purchase mechanism will be in place which will allow customers to add their purchase choices from the Roadster lineup into the Myntra shopping cart, removing the need for shopping bags, checkout counters and long billing queues, making it an even more comfortable experience for the customer.

To take the technology boom employed at Roadster one step further, a ’Highway 360’ feature, powered by virtual reality, will allow a person to visit idyllic locations and have incredible experiences, all through a virtual road trip. If this wasn’t enough, the customers will also get to pick tokens from a display that are to be placed on the touch-surface which will reveal real life destinations and clothing options appropriate for said location. All of this technology is done through the power of Artificial Intelligence, designed to empower and enrich the customer experience.

Myntra and Roadster’s alliance has paved the way for Myntra to develop an omni-channel presence, a feat not yet achieved by e-commerce sites in India of this scale. Roadster’s sale on Myntra constitutes of a little more than 8% of the overall revenue of Myntra, and such a partnership will help push Myntra’s dream of technology integration to the customer buying experience.

Ananth Narayan, CEO of Myntra & Jabong, spoke at the occasion of the store’s soft opening. He said that the store’s opening was the first step in Myntra’s plan to expand in the offline market and a brand like Roadster, with a growth rate of 80% YoY, will make for a very beneficial partnership for Roadster to boost its products and Myntra to become more omnipresent in the Indian retail market. He added that the store would be a transformative experience for customers through the technology that they will get to experience and bring in a new era of the shopping experience overall.

Adding to that, Manohar Kamath, Head of Myntra’s Fashion Brands, said that the store will be an addition to the portfolio of what Myntra has to and can offer to customers and the store’s design will prove to be a game changer for the future of retail.

 

Myntra Wins ET Panache Award For Trend-Setting Workplace

At a grand evening in Mumbai last Friday, Myntra was awarded the ET Panache Trendsetting Workplace Award. Myntra’s trendsetting workplace is as much about its physical interiors as it’s about the culture of mixing work and play.

The moment you step inside, you might take a step backwards, thinking you have wrongly come to a modern mall! It starts at the reception itself, which resembles a high-end shop. There’s a Look Good Café as well as a live video-shoot ramp. The names of famous fashion models are scrawled on the walls, while portraits of sports and fashion icons brighten up the office space.

Comics and graffiti decorate the walls, while lounges welcome you to take a break. The mannequins and racks of clothes, not to mention camera on a tripod, are typical signs of a fashion photoshoot.

The brand Myntra is representative of fashion to its numerous fans. Similarly, its office recreates the world of fashion across its four floors, with each floor showcasing different aspects of the fashion business – such as fashion brands, fashion sports, fashion editors and fashion stylists.

Myntra’s office in Bangalore also has one of the largest spaces dedicated to indoor games like badminton, snooker, foosball and gym. There’s indoor space to practice cricket, running, bicycling. Myntra even has its own cricket league – the Myntra Premier League – in which high employee participation is seen.

Asked to explain the reason behind Myntra bagging the ‘Trendsetting Workplace’ Award, during an interview, Myntra CEO Ananth Narayanan said, “For me, a trend is an idea, invention, or differentiated approach, that fundamentally changes how people, organisations and society conduct themselves.”

“Trends tend to shape and change the ecosystem permanently. When it comes to Myntra, Ananth elaborates, belonging as it does to “an industry like fashion, it is important to have a vibrant and open culture that spawns creativity and nurtures talent. Our culture and office are intertwined. Our vibrant and colourful office space underscores our commitment to create a vibrant and fun culture at work.”

“Since Myntra employees spend a considerable part of their day within the office, it is important that the workspace reflect the culture that one wants to build. People mix work and play without compromising on results,” he adds.

What’s even better is that the trendsetting culture at Myntra is not just about office design, but that it extends to some pretty cool policies and perks also. Women employees, for example, have the option of taking a six-month maternity leave, followed by flexible working models on their return to office.

Since the beginning, Myntra has succeeded in building a really different culture that aids innovation, encourages risk-taking, values ownership and appreciates collaboration. The main differentiators that help to promote such are a culture are Myntra’s value system, which comprises, “Myntra First, Aim High, Make it Happen, Make Work Fun, Look Good & Relentless Focus on the Consumer.”

Each of these values is deeply embedded into Myntra’s Systems And People Practices.  Some key examples of implementing these values can be seen in the “Myntra Performance Management System”, which is aimed at recognising team performance through establishing team goals over individual goals. The Myntra Customer Immersion Programme ensures each employee understands the consumer by actually delivering products door to door, before officially onboarding.

Ananth Narayanan says, “I see two big shifts in the workplace. First, the approach to doing business has changed from linear to non-linear. Secondly, organisations no longer view employees as resources, but as partners in their success. The emergence of technology giants and new age start-ups has played a big role in this.”

Myntra’s Vision Is To Make You Look Good

A company that dedicates all its resources to make at least 50 million people look good by 2020, and becomes one of the most loved brand of the country, does deserve recognition. And in fact, the company got just that recently. At the 7th Annual India Leadership Conclave & Indian Affairs Business Leadership Awards 2016 hosted by the Network 7 Media Group, Myntra was awarded India’s Most Admired & Valuable Power Brand Award 2016.

Myntra’s CMO and Head of International Brands, Gunjan Soni accepted the award, along with a delivery agent and emphasized that becoming India’s biggest and most popular fashion and lifestyle destination by helping 50 million Indians ‘Look Good’ by 2020, is Myntra’s vision. She also said that Myntra has a lot of aspirations in this year. It is looking to engage over 20 million users on the Myntra platforms and will continue to work on “top of mind recall” with the consumer in the online fashion category. The company aims to do this by offering the best of Indian and international brands on its platform, besides connecting fashion lovers to influencers, brands and celebrities through the use of technology.
