The Christian Dior brand is set to launch into the Indian market, with its first boutique in the country's capital and another earmarked for Mumbai within a year.

"India is growing fast. Entering this market would mean good business for us. We want to establish our name and brand in India at the moment," Christian Dior general manager (Middle East and India) Regis Rimbert was quoted by Asia Pulse saying.

The price of Dior goods will be slightly higher than Paris, because of the higher taxes. However, when asked about revenues, Rimbert said the focus would be to establish the brand in India rather than making profits, Asia Pulse said.
