Last Tuesday Christian Dior opened its first ever boutique in India, with other luxury brands like Versace and Gucci expected to follow right behind. This is big news for fashion lovers in India, where business from out of the country has been restricted for so long. Other luxury retailers like Louis Vuitton, Fendi and Bulgari already have stores open in India, as their demand for luxury goods keeps rising.
In a country where most of the population can’t afford their $1,000 bags (but who can really afford them in America either?) maybe it’s a good sign that big name retailers are coming into the mainstream for India. At least now fashionistas in India can save a few rupee’s on tariffs, taxes and import fees.
