Tiger Shroff has joined the bandwagon of celebrities launching their lifestyle brand. The Bollywood actor on September 10 launched his own active clothing and accessories brand PROWL, in partnership with Mojostar.
At an event held in Mumbai, he showcased PROWL’s range of active-wear products, designed specifically for ‘Read To Move Generation.’
Founded in July 2017, Mojostar is a joint venture between celebrity management firm Kwan Entertainment and marketing firm Dream Theatre. The products are designed, produced and sourced in-house, with 60 percent of manufacturing taking place in China and 40 percent in India.
PROWL’s launch comes at a time when the activewear segment is witnessing a higher level of activity with multiple brands launching and expanding their collections Last year, companies such as Arvind Lifestyle Brands, Aditya Birla Fashion and Retail, Monte Carlo, Indian Terrain and Numero Uno entered the activewear segment.
Bollywood celebrities are famous for their fashion sense, and fans want to copy their styling sense and wear clothes and footwear like them. This has prompted them to launch their brands.
Shroff is not the first celebrity to launch an activewear. In 2016, Bollywood actor Shahid Kapoor had also launched an athleisure wear brand Skult, targeting young men.
While actor Anushka Sharma tied up with Suditi Industries to launch her brand Nush, cricketer Virat Kohli launched his brand One8 in collaboration with German sportswear brand Puma. The well-known clothing line among all is Salman Khan’s clothing line ‘Being Human’
The PROWL range is exclusively available for purchase at the brand website and on Amazon Fashion. Its wide range of offerings includes T-shirts, tanks, shorts, sweatshirts, joggers, track-pants and compression wear starting at Rs 999.
PROWL will target young consumers between 18 and 25 years of age and will offer activewear clothing for now, and will move on to accessories such as footwear, gym bags and fitness accessories later in the year.
