Luxury Couture sells all kind of dresses, footwear in USA and India.

The promoters of the company including Piyush Saxena (Director) and Raghvender Kumar (Director) are global entrepreneurs.

Last year, the company had turnover of Rs 8.72 crore and, in the current fiscal (FY15-16), the company is expected to touch Rs 75 crore, which is a 50 per cent growth.

"Preliminary funding would enhance our operational efficiency and outreach. We believe that the speed at which a customer receives an online purchase plays a very important role in how that customer thinks about shopping online again in the future; so at www.luxecout.com, we have put a lot of focus on making sure the items get delivered to our customers as quickly as possible," Saxena said.
