FITIQUETTE [http://www.fitiquette.com ] is the first virtual dressing room of its kind
globally. This unique innovation generates a virtual mannequin based on various body types
to which users can further adjust each specific measurement according to their body until
it closely mirrors their own. This technology enables online shoppers to virtually ‘try
before they buy’, providing an online shopping experience which is very similar to the
offline model.

With this acquisition, Myntra.com [http://www.myntra.com ] will have the ability to
provide the best virtual solution to solve a perceived barrier of shopping online -
finding the right fit and size.

compelling Fashion Shopping experience for Indian consumers at par or better than global
standards. FITIQUETTE has developed pioneering technology for solving the Fit/Size problem
