Spreading its retail footprint

“We want to spread ourselves as far as Assam and Kolkata as we see a lot of opportunities in these places.

He adds, “I foresee substantial growth for Autumn/Winter range in terms of scale from existing stores.” 612 Ivy League is a brand catering to kids in the age group 3 to 14 years.

Since Diwali is in October this year, many brands plan to introduce their festival range earlier. That’s one change Indrayan says he is witnessing compared to last year.
