Cath Kidston has just opened its first store in India, officially marking its first entry into the country.
Located in Delhi, on Ambience Gurgaon, the store opening follows a franchise agreement signed earlier this year between Cath Kidston and Planet Retail Holding Private Limited.
There are plans to increase the number of stores across India over the next few years, with imminent openings slated for Mumbai in the City’s Grand Galleria and another in Delhi in Select City Walk.
““India is a very important market for us,” Cath Kidston chief executive Kenny Wilson said.

In addition, Cath Kidston recently appointed Michael Engelhaupt as its first head of Latin America to lead expansion in the region.
