About Myntra

Myntra Home Page

From 2007-2010, Myntra only made customized gifts like T-shirts, mugs, and others. In 2014, it was acquired by Flipkart with a worth of 2000 crore. After 2011, Myntra has stopped selling customized products, and from there they started their Fashion And Lifestyle journey. At that time they have launched Fastrack and Being Human with 350 Indian and International brands.

From starting, being under Flipkart still Myntra made itself a standalone brand. Their primary focus is always fashion-consuming consumers. In 2014, they have 1000+ brands with distribution across 9000 pin codes pan India.

In May 2015, after getting their new Chief Executive Officer Ananth Narayan, they stopped their website and made a mobile app. The reason they gave is that most of the traffic on the website comes from mobile. But this results in a 10% decline in sales, so that’s why they have decided to revive the website again in 2016.

Recently in January 2021, a woman filed against them, because according to her the logo looks like a naked woman. That time they have to modify their logo.
