Revolutionary brands like Revolution, Indian Levels, and Jaywalking have emerged as key players in this evolving realm. These brands have set themselves as brands that go beyond aesthetics, they have successfully been able to penetrate as their styles are reflected in an individual’s state of mind.
India, with an average age of 25, is witnessing a wave of change in the fashion industry as companies endeavor to capture the attention of Gen Z. Gen Z is all about individuality and personality. They use their consumption choices as a form of self-expression, rejecting the idea of fitting in. With the large Gen Z population in India, their spending habits differ from previous generations, with a preference for more shopping and increased expenditure.
Numerous brands, including established brands in India, Zara, and H&M, have recognized the shifting preferences of consumers. Their new collections go beyond fashion elements; they aim to capture the mood and persona of individuals, enabling them to express themselves more effectively.
After identifying this shift, we have introduced the international streetwear brand Alcott on Myntra Fashion. Alcott, a brand relaunching itself exclusively for this audience, embraces European streetwear fashion that resonates with Gen Z. Inspired by young, dynamic individuals passionate about technology, music, and social networking, Alcott’s new collection caters to the demands of this strongly communicative and expressive audience in India. Ripped denim, Straight trousers, and a range of fits from oversized to skinny tees and shirts are indeed key trends in the streetwear domain. Dive into the Confidence of Alcott’s Denim Collection, now available on Myntra.com.
Fashion platforms such as Myntra understand that Gen Z is the driving force behind this change and acknowledge its significance. In this new era of fashion, authenticity and confidence are paramount. Gen Z’s inclination to use clothing as a means of self-expression showcases their desire to break free from societal norms and establish their unique identities. As brands continue to embrace this shift, the fashion landscape will evolve, empowering individuals to convey their emotions and moods through their distinctive sartorial choices.
“Understanding the wants and needs of the new audience is our top priority when launching a brand on any platform. We firmly believe that these brands will be an instant hit among the vibrant and fashion-conscious Indian younger audience. In our future endeavors, we plan to collaborate with influencers to amplify brand awareness and establish a strong presence,” stated Zenil Shah, Managing Director of Marcowagon.
