Commenting on the launch, Vineeth Nair, CEO, AJIO, said, “The emerging new generation of shoppers seek more than just a product from the brand; they seek a vision and a purpose.

Over the past few years, the Indian D2C revolution has produced numerous brands that have aced innovative and mindful fashion.

AJIOGRAM will bring these brands under one umbrella, helping them scale and accelerate their growth while leveraging AJIO’s seamless shopping experience.

With this initiative, we aim to empower the next 100 fashion startups to emerge from India.”

AJIOGRAM appeals to shoppers, who not only prefer fashion that aligns with their personality and interests but are also looking for niche brands that are purpose-driven with limited edition merchandise.

They possess in-depth knowledge about the brand they are buying from such as, what the brand stands for, its story, the community it is building and its social impact.

AJIOGRAM was built with this core insight, to give customers an unparalleled shopping experience driven by content. 

Pallavi Desai, Co-founder, Creatures of Habit, said, “As a young, content-driven startup, we haven’t listed on a marketplace till now since we had no space to tell our story.

We decided to partner with AJIO because they give the brands a canvas to communicate with customers through the content they are creating, helping put the products in context and making it easier to connect and communicate with customers.”

Top brands available exclusively on AJIOGRAM include Urban Monkey, Supervek, Quirksmith, KRÁ Life, Creatures of Habit, Cecil, Truser, Fancypants, MIDNIGHT ANGELS BY PC, Monks of Method, Crafts and Glory among others.
