Flipkart-owned fashion marketplace Myntra said it is launching trending Work-From-Home wear from its private brands in the Middle-East market capitalizing on the consistent need of shoppers amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
The fashion etailer has entered into a strategic partnership with UAE’s e-commerce platforms, Noon and Namshi, to sell athleisure and casual wear to shoppers in the region which is said to have high internet penetration and growing popularity of online shopping due to the coronavirus outbreak.
Both Noon and Namshi are part of the Emaar group, a conglomerate located in the UAE. Noon is a horizontal e-commerce platform with products across categories, and Namshi is a vertical platform, focussing primarily on fashion in the premium segment.
On Noon, Myntra has listed brands Dressberry, Mast & Harbour, Moda Rapido, Here & Now, Sztori and HRX. Namshi will list Wrogn alongside Dressberry, Mast & Harbour and HRX over the next few weeks. Myntra will be putting up 500 styles on each platform. Both the companies will work closely to track new consumer needs in order to tweak styles and collections for the market.
This move comes a year after Myntra conducted a short-term pilot with Walmart Canada to test the international waters. As part of the pilot, consumer research data highlighted the Middle East and South East Asia as top markets with high internet penetration, densely populated shoppers of Indian origin and matching fashion choice.
