India has a highly fragmented fashion industry with very few 1000 Cr+ brands, indicating a massive opportunity to build brands at scale. However, scale should not come at the expense of profitability.

The focus of IFF 2023, therefore, will be to present some exciting case studies on the buildup of large scale, profitable businesses which have created huge value. IFF is India’s largest fashion retail event and it is with great excitement that I have taken on the role of Chairman of IFF’s 22nd edition in 2023.

The theme of IFF 2023 (28th Feb and March 1st 2023 in Bengaluru) will be decoding DNA of profitable growth, defined by value creation. The event will cut through topline naivete and focus on real metrics that matter including building operational capabilities for consistent high-quality execution, creating wealth through profitability and focus on return on capital employed. Creation and retention of talent will be key for nurturing this DNA to profitability.

IFF 2023 will deep dive into indepth conversations with leadership teams to uncover management axioms that drive people, processes, and purpose consistently towards value creation. In addition, sharp insights by leading investment and financial analysts will decode organisational practices offering unique actionable takeaways for participants.

Join me at this extraordinary edition of India Fashion Forum on 28 Feb and Mar 1, 2023 at Hotel Conrad, Bengaluru with the country’s most powerful fashion business leaders, for mind-bending insights to sharpen the future of fashion in India.
