Wacoal, a global leader in the luxury lingerie market is all set to increase its global footprint with its entry into the Indian market. Wacoal India Private Limited is a joint venture between Wacoal International Hong Kong Co.

Initially, the brand is all geared to open exclusive stores in key metros like Mumbai and Delhi in July, 2015. The brand shall also be made available on popular E-Commerce routes and department stores very soon.

Tsuneo Matsui, CEO of Wacoal International Hong Kong Co. Ltd. said, “We decided to foray into the Indian market as it is representative of exponential market growth and is an economy which is conducive to industry with its basic policies such as foreign investment promotion, social infrastructure development and expansion of industries.”

Commenting on the joint venture with Wacoal International Hong Kong Co. Ltd., Sandeep Goenka, Chief Executive Officer of Periwinkle Fashions Private Limited said, “We are extremely excited about our joint venture with Wacoal International Hong Kong Co.
