Through this event, between Saturday and Monday, Myntra customers will get access to 35 new brands, 25 being international. Designed in line with the flash sale models followed by global e-commerce giants or smartphone brands, Myntra aims to add 100,000 customers.
"We are very excited. The purpose is to bring together people from the fashion world -- bloggers, celebrities and customers who are interested in fashion," added Narayanan. The collections would later be included for users of Jabong, the company Narayanan turned around after Myntra bought it in a fire sale from Rocket Internet.
Myntra plans to create different value propositions for customers, via brand launches, exclusive lines or celebrity gigs. The event will also see auctions of some celebrity designwear.
"With most of the celebrities, we have some sort of relationship already. Overall, our goal is profitability. Even with the marketing cost, it will be a profitable event for us," said Narayanan.
