The Indian fashion market has been growing at a brisk rate and is expected to reach a size of USD $115-125 billion by 2025, according to Times of India. Fashion brands are now largely on social media for marketing and engagement and are exploring e-commerce by investing in digital technologies like virtual try-ons, augmented reality, and artificial intelligence technologies.
Despite the always-on shopping opportunities that e-commerce presents, the annual festive season witnesses a burst of activity in this space, and the buzz is getting louder every year. The 2022 festive season saw an increase of almost 97% in total sales of apparel, footwear & fashion accessories compared to 2021 (Omnifynd).
To leverage the festive shopping fever, fashion brands begin to plan their strategies well in advance. In addition to festive offers and festive discounts, they turn to data analytics and digital tools that enable them to sharpen their customer targeting so that they can claim a larger slice of the online shopping pie.
