The biggest-ever edition of the mega fashion event is also set to witness a massive uptick in demand, at 4X over BAU and 1.5X over the last winter edition of the event, with close 50% of the contribution coming from tier 2-3 markets.
The fashion major is also set to bring a smile to 40 million faces, as it brings the ‘biggest’ of everything – brands, collections, offers, and more. Myntra also expects 65% higher traffic to the platform during the event, compared to last year, owing to higher adoption of fashion through e-commerce and Myntra’s superlative value proposition.
What consumers can look forward to?
Consumers can pick their favourite fashion wear, accessories, beauty products, home decor and more at the best possible price points from brands such as W, Nike, Puma, Adidas, USPA, Levis, Marks & Spencer, Roadster, HRX, Mango, GAP, UCB, Tommy Hilfiger, Biba, Vero Moda, ONLY, AND, H&M, MAX, Pantaloons, Lifestyle, Mother Care, Smashbox and Glamglow, among others.

Whether it is the biggest catalogue size, biggest brands, or the biggest value offers, EORS can easily claim the place of the country's biggest fashion event. The present edition of the EORS is slated to be the biggest in terms of growth as well and has a set of incredible value offers to ensure the biggest savings for Myntra’s customers. Myntra has lined up multiple constructs and special offers for its customers. For instance, never before offers from the biggest brands, next buy rewards with every purchase, a flat Rs. 500 off on the first transaction and free delivery for one month for new customers will be available in addition to exclusive offers for Myntra insiders. The specially crafted ‘Shout & Earn’ program that allows shoppers to invite or refer friends to the event, can fetch extra discounts, up-to Rs 150, per friend who may just visit the EORS page on the platform and not necessarily make a purchase. Myntra has tied up with multiple banks for offers during EORS. Shoppers can get ~50-80% off on products, along with an additional 10% off on ICICI and Kotak Mahindra bank debit and credit cards.
