Industry Updates - 17th June 2016 - Apparel Resources. StitchWorld: StitchWord Editorial Issue November 2015. I always hear that time has changed and so have the dynamics of the business…, but I am not really sure that it is true! Talking to a Buyer or reading about his sourcing strategy will really impress you on the importance given to social, environmental and safety issues.

StitchWorld: StitchWord Editorial Issue October 2015. StitchWorld: StitchWord Editorial Issue September 2015. Africa Fashion Show 2016 in Nigeria - Fashion Forecast. StitchWorld: StitchWord Editorial Issue August 2015. In my last issue I talked about how the domestic garment industry in India is catching up to the best practices of export industry. The same is also true for Bangladesh garment industry which is currently maturing from the point the Indian industry operated during mid 90’s. The only difference is the pace with which the country is moving forward and taking cautious steps not to repeat the mistakes that its predecessors did. Since there is no technology lag between developing and developed countries in garment manufacturing, the industry in South East Asia should take the advantage of low wages to scale up the production and be prepared for the changes. As the manufacturing industry is now at the doorstep of two of the world’s most populous nations – India and Bangladesh, the industry should exploit the domestic industry and not just eye exports.

StitchWorld: StitchWord Editorial Issue July 2015. With global rating agencies declaring that the Indian domestic market is ready for a major jump in size as consumers come of age, many traditional manufacturers and even garment exporters are now increasing their reach and making effort to give ‘quality’ products. It reminds me of the early days of the garment export industry, around the 80s, when most operated out of garages, barsati floors or from unauthorized areas and were exploring ways to be a preferred supplier. It was only in the 90s that the manufacturers emphasized on machines to improve their quality, and in the early 2000’s the focus shifted to compliance and finally to enhanced productivity and improved systems for better margins. Today, the domestic market is at the 90s stage, looking to upgrade because of the growing expectation of domestic consumers for quality, and also the neighbouring countries clamouring to enter India.
