fbb and LYCRA® brand partner to offer high-quality fashion with performance

Aug 01, 2018

Leading Indian fashion retail brand fbb is the preferred destination for young, trend-conscious shoppers seeking the latest in high quality fashion at affordable prices. So when the retailer launched its superior stretch range made with LYCRA® fiber, it wanted to let its nationwide customer base know all about it.

To promote the new range of clothing, fbb and the LYCRA® brand held joint consumer launch events at two popular shopping malls – the Ambience Mall in Delhi NCR and the Infinity Mall in Mumbai. Catwalk fashion shows showcasing the new collection saw models springing off trampolines, and featured hip-hop dance routines and trick bike shows to demonstrate its stretch, comfort and durability.

A touch of glamour gave the events even greater appeal among its fashion conscious following, with high-profile Indian celebrities and Bollywood stars Esha Gupta and Vidyut Jammwal unveiling the new collection.

fbb’s latest clothing range incorporating LYCRA® fiber innovations not only offers even greater value with better fitting, longer lasting, more comfortable garments, but promises to be the beginning of a long-standing commercial partnership. The two companies are working on developing future collections together, using innovative fiber and fabric technologies such as COOLMAX® technology, LYCRA SPORT®, LYCRA® BLACK and LYCRA® TOUGH MAX™ technologies.

The joint events were widely covered in popular textile magazines, through consumer-focused advertorials in a leading national daily available in eight metro cities, and by online news channels.

"This is a great opportunity for both LYCRA® brand and fbb to go a notch higher on product development and rope in a new set of evolved customers with the help of LYCRA® fiber innovation," said Rakesh Biyani, Future Retail Ltd.’s Joint MD, who attended the Mumbai event along with INVISTA Executive Vice President, Julien Born to announce the new partnership.
