Dollar charts future growth with exports pop up stores and new categories 002“We choose to create our own styles rather than follow any particular theme,” affirms Ankit Gupta, Vice-President, Dollar Industries. “We try to bring out the styles that go with the trend, are fashionable, comfortable and most importantly fit well,” he explains. This season, Dollar has experimented with stretchable and body-hugging fabrics and is concentrating on bright and pastel shades. “In upcoming season, we will launch a new category ‘Athleisure’, for both Dollar Bigboss & ForceNXT,” notes Gupta. “Our main target customers are those who are passionate towards athletic activities, workouts and sports. For the Athleisure range, we will introduce joggers, track pants, polo T-shirts, capri, etc.”

Cotton blends, Lycra elastane fabrics in demand

Noting that innerwear has evolved from being just functional to fashionable, Gupta says, “Today people are prone to wearing good innerwear when they go for gyming or sport activities as fit, comfort and style all play a very important role here. Innovations in this category will largely depend on the fabrics being used.” The brand will use cotton blend and Lycra Elastane for this season. It doesn’t experiment much with the prints in innerwear.

Stating that this has been a good season for the brand Gupta notes, “We take time to appreciate our dealers and arrange business tours to motivate them to perform better. This not only increases our sales, but also gears us for the summer season,” he adds.
