The new-normal is no longer ‘new’. It is now normal. And within a span of three months, the use of online for shopping has surged. With social distance being stressed on, and as online shopping become more prominent, a lot of businesses are going online. Among the industry that is making the huge shift is the fashion industry.
To speak of local (India) brands, small yet high-end fashion brands are now turning digital to adapt with the lockdown situation and cater to online demands. This means that Myntra, India’s largest e-commerce fashion retailer, which currently controls 70% of the mass fashion market (alongside Flipkart) will start to face competition.
Among the high-end (fashion) brands going online is ZINGRIN, one of the first high-end fashion brands from North-East India to have settled snugly in the mainstream fashion industry. It had flagship stores in New Delhi, Mumbai and Manipur before it decided to completely move to eCommerce.
