Arvind forays into e-commerce with Creyate

MUMBAI: Keeping pace with the rising online sector, textile manufacturer Arvind group announced its entry into the e-commerce space with the launch of its online custom clothing brand, Creyate.

 

Arvind Internet Limited (AIL), a subsidiary of Arvind group will anchor all the company's e-commerce initiatives. Arvind group executive director Kulin Lalbhai will drive the e-commerce initiative at the company, which will be a major growth driver for Arvind moving forward.

 

Elaborating AIL’s vision Lalbhai said, “Arvind Internet Ltd will be the vehicle that will enable Arvind’s e-commerce vision. As pioneers in bringing global fashion to India, Arvind now intends to extend innovative and best in class brand experiences to the online world. We are all set to be a leading consumer lifestyle player in the digital space by engaging in several business models that can scale globally.”

 

 “In an attempt to break away from norms, labels and quick-fixes, Creyate strives to bring to you a fashion identity that is uniquely you, created by you. You can create garments on a 3D visualisation engine, which would then be made for you - it’s like having a very own factory at your fingertips. With more than 100,000 unique products to create, this is the next generation of fashion retail,” added Lalbhai.

 

Arvind has so far invested close to Rs 20 crore into building capacities for Creyate, Lalbhai said, adding that the company would scale up investment going forward. Creyate has plans of launching stores in 15 cities within the next year. It already has stores in Bengaluru, Ahmedabad and Delhi and offers home visits in major cities.

 

Creyate intends to offer an alternative to ready-wear as well as traditional custom clothing and targets to be Rs 100 crore plus brand by next year and Rs 1000 crore revenue from e-commerce in three years.

 

 AIL COO Tejinder  Singh said, “Creyate can be experienced in our digitised retail stores or alternatively, one can visit our website (www.creyate.com)  to design garments online and then schedule a home visit by our ‘Style Stewards’. Style Stewards not only take a customer’s measurements, they also give them style advice and complete wardrobe solutions. And once measured, customers can ‘Creyate’ their own garments from anywhere and they will be delivered as per their exact fit at their door step.”
