Creyate intends to offer an alternative to ready-wear as well as traditional custom clothing and targets to be Rs. 100 crore plus brand by next year.
Tejinder Singh, Chief Operating Officer at AIL, explained the experience led multi-channel concept further, “Creyate can be experienced in our digitised retail stores or alternatively, one can visit our website to design garments online and then schedule a home visit by our ‘Style Stewards’. Style Stewards not only take a customer’s measurements, they also give them style advice and complete wardrobe solutions. And once measured, customers can ‘Creyate’ their own garments from anywhere and they will be delivered as per their exact fit at their door step.”
Creyate has plans of launching stores in 15 cities within the next year. It already has stores in Bengaluru, Ahmedabad and Delhi and offers home visits in major cities.
