Commenting on the launch Rashmi Putcha, Ideator,, says, "There are several physical exhibitions that are held throughout the year. It is a logistical nightmare for the participants. Consumer delight is also compromised due to lack of after sales service. We decided to move the whole experience online opening up a whole world of opportunities for participants as well as consumers.”

She adds, “ExFirst will be an open platform for anybody who is keen on organising an online exhibition. Our mission, with this first fashion exhibition under ExFirst, is to provide designers and retailers an opportunity to reach out to consumers across the country. The initiative has seen a tremendous enthusiasm from the fashion industry. A few of them are launching a special collection for these three days.  The iKarmik team has put together a valuable and concerted effort. They have done a commendable job of reaching out to the right designers and made this exhibition a promising reality.”

Karmik Varma, Founder, iKarmik, says, “It’s a one of a kind online event, not just concept wise but also scale wise. Never before has one heard of finding 150+ designers and brands on one platform for a fixed period, that too exclusively for fashion and lifestyle. We had fun curating the merchandise for this. Today, one is increasingly hearing talk of re-monetising the economy and this is a step in the right direction. Come to think of it, why shouldn't a fashion exhibition be part of the movement called Digital India?"

“The technically savvy brains at LIQVD ASIA have conceptualised a masterpiece of a platform, which promises a lot of firsts, therefore ExFirst. It is slated to witness a mammoth response, even from the last mile of the country making the first edition a definite success,” adds Varma.
