We all know how some luxury brands are still reluctant to disclose their prices online and incorporate the online sales function. Well, it is clear now that it is their own loss. According to an estimate, by 2025, almost 20% of the total sales on luxury brands will take place online. Many luxury brands have stepped ahead and incorporated online shopping functions. For instance, recently I was able to shop Khaadi luxury collection via their official site. Since I’m a huge fan of ethnic wear, I was so glad that I could shop for my favorite pieces from the comfort zone of my house.
