Sharks back Gavin Paris’ co-founders, but not the company
Fashion is a dynamic industry, and trends keep changing with every season. Previously, quality and fitting were primary factors, but today, it’s not the same. With oversized and distressed clothing in trend, Gavin Paris brings clothing where fit doesn’t matter. Kishor Jairamka & Ashutosh Roy launched Gavin Paris in 2022 as a new-age streetwear clothing brand that sells oversized, not plus-size clothing. Aiming their products towards the age group of 18-30, Gavin Paris primarily markets through Facebook and Instagram. With 4 categories, they have sold over 25,000 products through their website only. In 7 months since inception, they have Rs. 1.4 crore in sales with 60% gross margins and a 15.8% growth rate.
The founders seek an investment of 50 Lakhs for 5% equity @ a 10cr valuation. Shark Vineeta offers a conditional deal of 30 lakhs for 20% @ a 1.5 cr valuation & 20 lakhs in debt @12% interest with a condition that 40% equity goes to Ashutosh. The founders respectfully denied the offer.
