Wildcraft expands out of India
As a first step toward growing its international presence, Indian fashion brand Wildcraft has launched into the Middle East and Southeast Asia.
It has formed partnerships for its foray into the UAE, Oman and Muscat markets, and online partnerships for Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore and Taiwan, reports ETRetail.com.
Wildcraft unveiled a new brand identity last year while expanding its product portfolio into clothing and footwear. It has also added 130 retail outlets in more than 50 cities across India, giving it more than 3000 distribution points in more than 400 cities in India.
In Southeast Asia, the brand has partnered with Zalora, part of the Global Fashion Group, giving Wildcraft access to the Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore and Taiwan markets. It will use this alliance to initially sell its outdoor gear products.
Co-founder Gaurav Dublish says the international expansion “is just the start of our growth plans”.
“The focus, at this point, is to reach countries with similar climatic conditions and geo-proximity.”
