How big is the market for lifestyle now in India?

The fashion retail market stands at more than $100 million, of which about 98 per cent are brick-and-mortar stores. Online is minuscule.

How did Fashalot come about?

It came from how we are struggling to find out about products, offers and sales in offline retail shopping. We wanted to create a connect between retail stores and shoppers.

How many subscribers are there on the application currently?

Over a lakh shoppers on the platform; the numbers are growing rapidly.

How do you decide on which stores to tie up with?

We work with several international, national, regional and local brands in the fashion category.

How does the company keep track of orders?

How enthusiastic are stand-alone...
