With a purpose to promote sustainability in the country’s textile industry, India’s leading lifestyle and fashion conglomerate, Arvind Limited has showcased its sustainable collection of clothing through a fashion show at the concluding day of ustainable Apparel Coalition (SAC) annual member meeting in Bangalore. The display included sustainable collection of products by Arvind such as Denim, tops, shirts, Khadi clothes etc.
A beautifully choreographed event by Bangalore-based renowned fashion stylist and choreographer Prasad Bidapa was witnessed by around 250 guests from leading brands, manufacturers, NGOs and academia. A fashion show was divided into three brief segments in order to present a comprehensive sustainability-focused product portfolio by Arvind.
