Featuring workwear, casualwear and a party range, the collections also introduces new Smart Fit to cater to a wider customer base.

Creating holistic experience through omnichannel expansion

Having a strong presence in Tamil Nadu, Derby Jeans now plans to explore adjacent markets in Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka and Telangana. “We will expand through both offline as well as online channels,” adds Kapoor. With 63 EBOs across Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Andhra Pradesh, the brand now plans to grow 75 outlets by the end of this financial year.

Terming it as an emerging retail trend, Kapoor likens omni-channel retail to creating a holistic customer experience. “Expanding into omni-channel can be great business proposition,” he says. However, he cautions “it can also disrupt existing processes. To prevent this, brands need to develop a new set of business processes rather than tinkering with existing ones.”

Putting India on world fashion map

Expecting the upcoming season to yield 15 per cent year on year growth, Kapoor reveals “Derby Jeans aims to create 1,000 first generation entrepreneurs by franchising its community by 2025.”

The vision is to create 1,000 successful first generation entrepreneurs by franchising the Derby Jeans Community thereby, putting India on the world fashion map by March 2025.
