We are also the first-ever fashion brand to enter the Metaverse in India with such an immersive experience.”

With the metaverse, we will be able to push the envelope further. Not just see and buy but experience and buy is the name of the game. We as a metaverse platform are here to bring in a step-change and enable brands to use technology to communicate, express themselves and create shopping opportunities for consumers in the near future.”
