“Even on the most solemn occasions I got away without wearing socks and hid that lack of civilization in high boots”

? Albert Einstein

And to avoid all kinds of fashion blunders when you try to get your hands on the latest trend of the season, you get the newsflash- Out of Stock.

Now the dynamics have changed. People now prefer a much personalized and crisp approach that is as easy as pie – Mobiles. Shopping via mobile apps did to the fashion and retail industry what IPL did for the cricket world- gave a new edge

You intend to look good in the next week office party and want to hit it off with your new client right from the beginning but don’t have time to make it to the stores? My advice – switch to mobile shopping and look plain swanky. You won’t even have to get up from your seat to make a buy, if you feel lazy. How convenient, isn’t it?

The future of fashion and online retail world is by all means extremely mobile and big shot and names in the industry cannot afford to get left behind in the race or pass up this channel.

‘Easy Access’, whenever you hear these two words a feeling of ‘less effort’ runs through your mind and you are pleased as punch. Mobile apps offer you easy access to websites and payment options that take as long as the blink of an eye.

Gone are the days when you had to reach office before your boss, so that you can shop online for your Friday Hungama. Now you can take a breather and shop from wherever you want with mobile apps. No more desktops and laptops, no more delayed shopping. Look best, feel best.

In case of desktop shopping, retailers do not feel as a confident as with mobile apps. The reason behind this is the drastic fall of desktop shoppers in the last few years.

You can navigate and shop using apps anytime, anywhere as per your convenience. This has done the trick for mobile apps.

Recently, I had this golden opportunity to shop using Myntra app, and trust me when I say this- smooth as butter. I was thrown open to high-quality, fashionable imagery that is clutter free and simple, designed to turn our browsing experience as convenient as possible, just like a tour guide for a new city.
