1) your client can stock their merchandise with specialist online retailers and marketplaces such as Jabong and Myntra.

2) a number of foreign brands are using this route to sell their products in india . 

3) your client can participate in International  Fashion  Trade fair held in india  wherein top international brands exhibit their products associated with fashion industry 

4)  Exhibitors will carry their samples for display at the trade fair. They can enter their samples in thecountry as items for re-export, when sales are not admitted in the exhibition

1. Your client requires permission to sell such product in India directly unless he participates in a Govt. or Chamber organised Fair wherein such permission does not require any prior permission.

2. You can sell his products in India on payment of requisite Customs Duty.
