WHAT’S UP IN 2023?

DECODING THE DNA OF PROFITABILITY: GROWTH DEFINED BY VALUE CREATION

India boasts of less than 30 brands in the Fashion, Beauty, Home universe that can claim annual revenues upwards of INR 1000 CR. On the other side are an estimated 4000+ brands — in the same categories — in the INR 10-100 CR revenue band.

Clearly, a highly fragmented market with a visibly sparse top band of high worth — and profitable — companies. Translating to a massive opportunity to build brands at scale. However, building scale without denting profitability — and creating value — requires an entirely special blend of focus, intel and skills. Going forward, Profitability will be, quite literally, the bottom-line of India’s fashion retail valuation.

And India Fashion Forum, aims to be the catalyst of this powerful, grounded approach for the country’s underserved fashion retail landscape.

IFF  2023 will aim to separate the chaff from the grain, to eliminate vain, top-line-driven expansion in the calculation of true organisational and brand value. Driven by the bold theme of DECODING THE DNA OF PROFITABILITY: GROWTH DEFINED BY VALUE CREATION, the event will cut through ‘top-line inflation’ and focus on the metrics that really matter:
