Biba’s upcoming collections includes trendy outfits with ethnicwear

9th Aug 2021, Mumbai:

Synonymous with pretty women in Punjabi, homegrown ethnic wear brand BIBA was launched in 1988. In the last 33 years, the brand has grown from a ‘home grown’ product into a national ‘brand’ capitalizing on the retail boom in the country. Today, it is known as the largest Indian wear retail chain in the country.

In 2015, BIBA launched a fashion value brand called Rangriti to enhance its presence at lower price points and cater to a large consumer segment that purchases from the unorganized Tier II and III markets. Siddharth Bindra, Managing Director, expounds on the brand’s products, markets and future plans.
