In this issue of Apparel : Apparel’s May 2015 issue takes on a holistic approach to the apparel industry in India, with a balanced look at both offline and online retail. The business of fashion is an ever-changing one and this issue focuses on that very aspect.
This issue covers two of CMAI’s flagship ideas; the CMAI Apparel Index, which highlights the fluctuations in the industry in the Jan-March 2015 quarter, and the CMAI Apparel Training Centre, which is a venture to train and provide employment to 35,000 youth in the apparel sector in the next three years.
While the CMAI looks at the fourth quarter, we delve into the first quarter of the industry in the ‘Industry Insights’ section, for the leading trends that kicked off the year. We also study how ports in South India are proving to be effective and beneficial trading gateways for apparel exporters.
As the world goes digital, it only seems right to include an ‘E-space News’ section, which highlights the survival strategies of online players versus brick and mortar players.
Our ‘Features’ section indicates positive changes in the apparel industry, with a look at sustainable fashion and the growth of Kochi as a booming clothing market. These are supplemented well by the ‘Fashion Speak’ story on B. D. Somani institute’s fashion show, which provided a platform to fresh talent to showcase their creations.
We make peace with the sweltering summer with a ‘Trend Talk’ story covering The Collection Première Moscow Fashion Fair which brings beach styles to the forefront.
The ‘Regulars’ section includes a round-up of important news and events in the apparel world (nationally and globally, a look at what’s trending, news of the brands in vogue and forthcoming events in the world of apparel.
