In a first, Xiaomi has announced the Mi Express Kiosk initiative in India under which customers can purchase Xiaomi smartphones and mobile accessories directly from the Mi Express Kiosks (vending machines). Xiaomi says that the customers can make payments through all forms of payments, that is, credit cards, debit cards, cash and UPI. The company says that it will set up more kiosks in metro cities in the coming months.
Xiaomi says that by introducing these vending machine-style kiosks, it has eliminated operational and cost inefficiencies for the consumers. The price of these phones will be similar to that of the ones selling at the Mi Homes and Mi.com. All technology equipping Mi Express Kiosks has been researched and developed in India, the Chinese tech brand said, adding that it aims to set up several more kiosks in the coming months.
These Mi Express Kiosks can be found across metro cities in public areas with greater footfall such as tech parks, metro stations, airports, and shopping malls, and the company plans to gradually expand the retail plan across more cities. Furthermore, customers can also easily access information on the locations of Mi Express Kiosks on mi.com. Apparently, the kiosks would be open between 10 am and 8 pm in India.
In the first quarter of 2019, Xiaomi again topped the Indian smartphone market capturing 29-percent share, according to Counterpoint’s Market Monitor service. Xiaomi remained the smartphone market leader due to its aggressive offline expansion, the firm said. Its recently launched Redmi Note 7 series crossed the one million mark within the first quarter of its launch. Xiaomi’s offline contribution was highest in March.

NEW DELHI — It’s fashion season in India’s capital, with the country’s top designers showcasing their latest collections to lure the rapidly growing domestic and export markets for Indian haute couture.
Before the styles debut on the runway lie days of planning, fittings and hair and makeup sessions to experiment with looks, poses and choreography. Just days ahead of the big show, tailors take models’ measurements and fashion designers finish rehearsing.
Top fashion names and models participated in Lotus Makeup India Fashion Week organized by the Fashion Design Council of India earlier this month.
The show celebrated the sari, Indian women’s most idiosyncratic garment, 6 yards of fabric that symbolize a centuries-old tradition.
“As a long piece of fabric, it’s not easy to drape, a lot of designers have worked on it over time and it is being styled differently to inspire the younger generation to wear,” Vaishali S., a Mumbai-based designer, said of the sari.
Models sashayed down the runway in a riot of color and glitz as Delhi socialites, Bollywood stars and prospective buyers watched for the season’s next “it” items.
The sari was juxtaposed with other Indian ensembles, Western wear and fusion clothing collections for men and women.
The show finale was an ode to the sari, worn by the runway models in modern, reconstructed forms, along with elaborate jewelry and accessories against striking backdrops.
Vaishali said the saris on the runway paid tribute to the great variety across India of “weaves, textures, drapes and fabrics with every state and every village having its own strongly distinct and contemporary style, alive and evolving.”
At the end, avid fashionistas in the audience blended in with fashion models as buyers thronged the stalls of designers, who offered their creations for sale, pret-a-porter.
