MUMBAI: Myntra, a leading destination for fashion and lifestyle online, has announced the launch of its Accelerator Programme.

Through this initiative, Myntra is looking at forging strategic partnerships with about 10-15 local fashion brands that have a strong founding team and unique design sensibility. The program is designed to accelerate growth of these brands through technical, know how, analytics and branding support from Myntra.

Myntra has signed partnerships with two brands, Chemistry and AKS and has five more brands in the pipeline. Chemistry is a trendy fashion brand for women, who want to stand apart from generic fashion. With a reach of about half a million customers at present, its association with Myntra through the Accelerator programme is expected to take it to three million customers in the next three years. AKS is an ethnic wear brand for the modern day Indian women. The brand?s strong product value proposition has helped it scale to a $6 million annual GMV in three years. Under Accelerator, it is expected to witness a growth of 10X over the next three years.

Myntra-Jabong CEO Ananth Narayanan said, ?We believe that the next 3-5 years will see the emergence of many new national brands. As leaders, Myntra and Jabong are well positioned to work closely with some of these emerging brands to propel them to the national stage."

The brands will be able to leverage our core strengths ? largest mass premium customer base and data driven insights on consumer, while also getting operational support. We are looking at creating about $ 1 billion incremental valuation for the Myntra Accelerator brands over the next three years.

CEO Chemistry Sunil Jhangiani said, ?Being an offline brand with a strong foundation, our association with Myntra opens up a new world of opportunities for us in terms of reach, visibility and volumes through the online channel. Myntra?s expertise in building successful online brands over the years, backed by strong technological support will aid us in shaping the future of Chemistry and establishing it as one of the foremost fashion brands in the country. We expect the online sales to become 50% of the brand sales in 3-5 years.?

AKS founder Nidhi Yadav added, ?As an online-first brand, we started small with a passion for design and identity. By associating with Myntra, we are taking the first major step towards creating a national brand. Myntra?s ability to build brands through digital marketing, capture and provide insights on customer behavior and enable reach to eight million+ women shoppers will be a game changer for our brand.?

With successful in-house brands such as Roadster and HRX, Myntra has the know-how of creating brands that have the potential to be category leaders. An online-first approach ensures that brands scale much faster and at better economies compared to an offline model. Through this program Myntra will help partners to build their brand online through Myntra and Jabong and also leverage data from the 18 million monthly active users to get insights on customer behavior and product assortments.
