Parting Thoughts

Vedant Fashions is a market leader in branded wedding and celebration wear, according to information from Crisil Research. It derives most of its revenues from exclusive brand outlets operated by franchises. This market segment is slated to grow in the upcoming years at an annualised rate of 18-20% by FY 25.

However, COVID-19 had affected Vedant Fashions’ revenues considerably. It is also highly dependent on a single product category and the frequency of weddings in the country. As such, one may want to be cautious and do adequate research before investing.
