They are the voice of consumer-led fashion and beauty in the country and the gatekeepers of trends. We are thrilled to announce the second edition of the Myntra Creator Fest and introduce the Myntra Glammys, both of which solidify our position as the forerunner of fashion and beauty trends in the country, with a pulse on what young India wants. This year, we have definitely taken it up many notches with unparalleled collaborations with brand partners, trend setters and fashion authorities alike. Right in time for EORS-19, this edition of the Creator Fest is poised to serve as a cynosure of inspiration for consumers to up their style quotient while making the most of what brands have to offer. Going by the success of last year's event, where we saw 250+ creators in attendance and a 3X uptick in social impressions (against BAU), we are very confident that this year will be even bigger and better."
