“We like Go Fashion (India) considering it is the first company to launch an exclusive brand dedicated to women’s bottom-wear. It has invested in digital & omni-channel engagement, and is focused on e-retail, distributive growth strategy to tap customers from tier 1 to tier 3 cities and expansion plans for existing and newer geographies,” said Vinod Nair, Head of Research at Geojit Financial Services.
Nair believes a growing number of working women, higher disposable income, and a shift towards safe and hygienic facilities triggered by COVID-19 augur well for the company. “The opening-up of markets will support revenue growth going forward.”
