Tell us a bit about doorstep tailoring ?
We had started this service back in 2018, where we thought, women are mostly busy, be it their office, home or kids. So we offered fully tailored clothes at door steps. This service was most loved by women who preferred this service. We send our female executive who helps them with fabric and measurements and delivery of stitched outfits.
