MUMBAI: Bangalore-based fashion e-tailer Myntra has come up with a first-of-its-kind digital fashion reality show, Fashion Superstar, in association with Zoom Studios, to change the way India shops. With this, the company is planning to turn ‘catalogue-led fashion’ into ‘content-led fashion’, Myntra-Jabong head Amar Nagaram stated.

The show, which airs its first episode on 17 September, will go live on the Myntra App and Zoom TV, and will be judged by Bollywood actress Sonakshi Sinha and celebrity stylist Shaleena Nathani. It will capture the journey of 10 social media influencers as they compete through a variety of fashion styling and digital content creation tasks to showcase their penchant for fashion and social media. The show has been produced in association with Banijay India.

Speaking about hosting the show on the new and improved Myntra app, which in future will get more and more personalised content, Nagaram said that while their content was always running on Zoom TV, they had ambitions of making it available on their app for the longest time.

He said, “We started by introducing video catalogues on our app. Today, we have 33-35 per cent of our products in a video catalogue format. And we noticed that doing this increased the engagement time on our app. Today, we are just next to the social media platforms on the basis of average time spent on an app; with an engagement time of 20 minutes.”

However, they were trying to figure how video content could be used in a more versatile manner in accordance with the shopping experience that the app provided.

Nagaram further shared, “With influencer-led marketing taking the center-stage, we are now sure how to shape the user behavior using video. And that’s why we started this show.”

With the show, Nagaram’s focus is not on driving sales but to further increase the engagement on the Myntra app.

“We are measuring the engagement on the basis of time spent by the user and not by the revenue because that would be the metric of how good the content is coming on the platform. I can post a content, which user might click and buy the product, but if people are not watching the entire content we have a problem with it,” Nagaram said.

On being asked about getting advertisers on board, Nagaram pointed out that Myntra engaged with select partners to sponsor some parts of the choice. This was a conscious shows given that it was their first fairway into the content space and the team wanted to execute it to perfection.

With brands like Liva and Libas in tow, Myntra aims to showcase ‘meaningful collaborations’ throughout the course of its new show.
