What Hyderabadis can expect is a mix of comfort wear, and dressy outfits, which she says are perfect for Zoom calls. That apart, several smart casuals, jewellery, shoes, and bags from sustainable labels are up for grabs. “The last year has been tough for small businesses and they have been looking forward to this showcase,” shares the founder. She adds that she does extensive research while selecting the brands. She looks at how the labels are following the tenets of sustainability and ethical trade promises.
