Footwear retailer Dune is to open its first store in India, with the launch scheduled for mid-2013, after partnering with Reliance Brands.
The new store in India is located in a premium shopping destination and will feature the new concept shop fit including an inverted catwalk featuring stiletto shoes as the store’s centrepiece. The store has been individually designed to highlight the ‘affordable luxury’ positioning of the brand.
Mohamediqbal Yacoobali, chief executive officer at Dune International, said: “As one of the leading emerging markets, India has been a key territory targeted for development by The Dune Group”.
As well as retailing online, Dune currently has 45 standalone stores and has 225 concessions across the UK, Europe, Russia and the Middle East.
The Dune group will be looking into further global expansion and set to launch more of its brands in India in the forthcoming future.
