Shreya Mishra- Business Idea

Shreya's initial experience as an analyst gave her insights into the market. She used to follow fashion trends and found a big void in the fashion apparel rental space. She thus came forward with the idea of launching Flyrobe that would let people rent trendy, fashionable clothes at a fraction of the retail price. The company is primarily popular for wedding fashions.

The business did really well in the US  and China. However, it displayed a lack of audience base in India. This is because of the Indian mentality of not wearing "used" clothes. But, today a lot of things have changed in India along with this thinking as well. Many People do search for such ventures to rent fashionable clothes, that is all the way offered to them at a reasonable price through Flyrobe.

Moreover, Flyrobe has been endorsed by twenty Bollywood celebrities on social media. This eventually took away the stigma of wearing used clothes.
