This mandate covers mainline and digital requirements of all the brand campaigns in India. The account will be handled from the agency’s Delhi office.

The brand has a clear vision about digital and has decided to use digital media as part of its overall marketing strategy for future and to further strengthen its position in the affordable luxury segment.
Commenting on the development, Mohit Gill, Commercial Director - India Operations, Phive Rivers said, “Allied Media’s enthusiasm, patience and innovative ideas made us choose them as our digital agency. The agency will have a vital role to play in repositioning the brand’s thought further as we grow and enabling Phive Rivers to achieve its aim of becoming a people’s first fashion choice when it comes to fashionable leather bags.”
Reacting to the win, Shripad Kulkarni, CEO, Allied Media said, “It’s not about digital marketing, but about a new perspective to marketing in the Digital Age. As more and more customers embrace digital, we need to recalibrate marketing plans. This association with Phive Rivers will give us another opportunity to break the myth while we take the brand to greater heights.”
Saurabh Gupta, Business Head, Allied Media Digital added here, “The team at Allied Media has designed a very niche digital strategy keeping in mind the ever growing fashion conscious consumer in India.
