Carat to handle Dixcy Textiles’s account

Kartik-IyerAfter witnessing an extremely successful year in 2014 only to be ranked as the No 1 media agency in India in the New Business League (published by R3), Carat is surely in no mood to slow down.

Dixcy Textiles, the producers of the national brand Dixcy Scott, is the latest to join the agency’s client kitty. MEC Chennai was the incumbent on the account, the size of which is estimated to be around Rs. 25 crores. Carat won the account in a multi-agency pitch and will handle it from its Bangalore office.

Dixcy Scott is a leading national brand catering to a wide range of product categories including the Innerwear, lounge wear and thermal wear segments. It has roped in Bollywood superstar Salman Khan as its brand ambassador. With a brand proposition that stands for, “The ultimate winner”, the idea here is to use Khan’s image to showcase life’s winning moments, dovetailed seamlessly through Dixcy’s various product range. The campaign is slated to break nationally on television in April, this year.
