The first day of the 11th edition of India Fashion Forum saw encouraging panel discussions on a multitude of subjects on franchising & retailing in India. The discussion subjects ranged from launching a retail brand, emerging retail concepts, non-store retailing, fashion franchising and others.

The highlights of the discussion that took place were successful inventory management and intelligent pricing strategy is the need of the day in the retailing space of
India.

'Non Store Retailing' was another interesting topic that was discussed at length. Non Store Retailing also better known as Online Shopping, gives the consumers the advantage of big brands being available to the consumers round the clock for shopping.

The discussion led to how online shopping is the next big wave in the Indian retail sector and its emergence as key purchase channels in smaller towns. Online presence, thus, becomes a necessary tool for fashion retail brands to reach out to their target consumers.

This is expected to increase the size of the textile retail industry from its current size of Rs 315,000 crore to Rs 990,000 crore by year 2020. The textile retail sector will be one of the largest employment generators apart from being a large value creator in the Indian economy.
