United Colors of Benetton
The UCB (United Colors of Benetton) was founded by the Benetton family in Ponzano Veneto, Italy. They opened their first store in 1965 in a small town of northern Italy called Belluno and 3 years later in the fashion capital, Paris. They were an iconic brand in the '80s and '90s but with the emergence of new competitive brands, they struggled to retain their position. Yet, they are still a very popular brand in the developing countries having stores worldwide with quality products and have always kept their style in vogue.
Levi Strauss & Co.
This is one of the oldest iconic American brands (since 1853) which changed the way of casual dressing. Their first commercial success dates back to 1870 when they were first to cater to the Californian gold mine workers with their tough reinforced denim work overalls. They created the first pair of Levi's 501 Jeans in the 1890s. Until the 1950's, the denim sales were largely confined to the heavy-duty working-class like cowboys, lumberjacks, miners, military & railroad workers. With the rise of the hippie, greasers, and the other rock groups, the Levis denim jeans quickly transitioned as a household name. Today, Levis Strauss & Co. is a worldwide brand that clocks revenue more than 5 billion per year.
Max Fashion, a conglomerate of the Landmark group, had its humble beginnings as a start-up way back in 2004. The idea of this startup was to bring value and affordable quality fashion to the masses. Max has close to 400 stores across 19 countries focusing mainly in the Middle East, North Africa, South East Asia & India. Max opened its first store in India in 2006 in Indore. Today, Max sells its merchandise both through its own web store as well as online retail giants like Amazon and Flipkart.
Fort Collins is a brand that is truly" Made in India".It is manufactured by the largest jacket manufacturers in India-‘INDRA HOSIERY MILLS’ which came into existence in 1954 !! That's new info for me. Can you imagine someone to set up a business at that point of time in India when jackets had no grounds as a fashion accessory , well that surely paid off now . Today, Fort Collins is India's one of the best selling quality jackets in the value range.
