With this, the company is taking a step to include size profile in the scope of ‘fashion for all’ idea

Flipkart-owned Myntra has announced the launch an in-house plus size apparel brand named Sztori, with an idea to enable ‘fashion for all’.

Quoting figures, Kamath also added that this segment will contribute to about $5-6 Bn in the $40 Bn Indian online fashion apparel market, by 2020.

Myntra’s Ongoing Efforts To Develop Its Private Brands

Private labels can be understood as a category in which certain products are manufactured by a third-party company and are sold under a retailer’s brand name.

For last few months, Myntra has been taking initiatives to develop its private label brands. Presently, over 14 private label brands have been responsible for generating 25% of its revenue. The platform is also expecting this share to grow to 30% by the next fiscal year.

Some of the major Myntra private label brands include Roadster, Dressberry,Anouk, Hrithik Roshan’s HRX, among others.

Myntra has in this month:

  • Launched its ethnic wear brand ‘House of Pataudi’ along with Bollywood actor Saif Ali Khan last week
  • It has started selling Deepika Padukone’s All About You at Walmart stores in Canada.
  • The platform is also planning to launch nearly 100 offline stores in the next two years for Roadster and HRX

According to an ET report, the Indian online fashion market is projected to grow to $14 Bn in 2020 from the present $4 Bn.

Further, with this launch, Myntra will now have to compete with other players in the plus size clothing space including, aLL Online, Amydus, CALAE, Larjjosa Fashion among many others.

Other than that, some other players such as Jabong, Stalkbuylove, Limeroad also offer plus size clothing on their platforms.

Myntra has been pushing its fashion private labels with an omni-channel viewpoint and now this has started reflecting in its category expansion as well. While plus size fashion may be available in select stores in Tier 1 cities, with a strong presence in Tier 2 and Tier 3, Myntra now seems to target the online shoppers in the small towns and cities of the country.

With India’s one of the most celebrated occasion, Diwali, around the corner, Myntra has certainly chosen right timing for the launch. Smart move Myntra!
