"This deal was part of our strategic intent to grow our international portfolio and this new relationship with Simon Carter will bring London's high fashion to the Indian market. The brand will offer complete ensemble solutions ranging from formal wear to casual wear," Aditya Birla Group Business Head, Apparel & Retail Business Pranab Barua said in a statement.
