Cashing on the USP
Parfait has its USP on full-busted and plus size premium lingerie and swimwear. Ideally, right now, there are almost no exclusive plus size lingerie retail organizations in India.
Akhil Srivastava, said, “We are from GLOBAL PLUS SIZE LINGERIE & ready to cater plus size lingerie market. Yes, there are few players they are providing some bigger size but option-size/colour/style/comfort & international feel nobody is giving.”
Establishing a Niche
There are some premium European and US lingerie brands performing well by giving a wide range of styles, colours, sizes at the same time capturing the audience well compared to the existing domestic brands.
“The mission is to be the most preferred plus size lingerie destination of India and to create awareness and spread education for women to feel more empowered to decide their own right size and how to wear the same through our professionally trained staff and fitters also. Simultaneously with our Workshops that are going to be held in the next few months in some major cities for women to celebrate their real selves and body,” stated, Srivastava.
Indian vs International Market
Exporting and international business can be interesting, exciting and in some cases challenging. But in all cases, it should be profitable and help a business to grow. Doing business in the US is not the same as doing business in India.
With the new business, we learn a set of new skills and new knowledge to acquire about the country you will be entering into. This brings to learn about the different laws and regulations, the different customer buying habits that affect your marketing strategies and materials to appeal to the new country you are entering.
Thus, it is important to remember that the way you operate your business will be determined by the culture and customer of the market you are entering.
