LIVA to build on its consumer success

Liva recently hosted the LIVA Partner Conclave 2015 at Radisson Blu, Jaipur.

This year March marked yet another milestone for Birla Cellulose with launch of ´LIVA´. LIVA has tremendous potential to revolutionise the way we think about fashion in textiles. Liva is expected to bring its key role in producing excellent fabric to the fore fabrics, in line with the consumer tastes and demands. It is an attempt to reach out to the end consumer with an innovative and quality offering, keeping a focus on the entire value chain involved to deliver. LIVA tagged garments were available with major retail brands, spread across 84 cities in India with visual Merchandise in 500 stores to enhance the consumer experience. The success of LIVA is evident by the fact that consumers have looked for the Liva tag in garments and experienced the natural, fluid, fashion in large numbers.

After the grand launch of LIVA, Birla Cellulose, a global leader in MMCF, has once again taken initiative to provide a platform to facilitate networking of leading domestic brands, Liva Accredited Partner Forum (LAPF) members & the who´s who of the Rajasthan garment industry to assure quality focussed offerings to the end consumer. Taking this forward, Liva hosted the LIVA Partner Conclave 2015 at Radisson Blu, Jaipur on August 7, 2015. This conclave also saw its collaboration with the Garment Exporters Association of Rajasthan.

The focus was on Liva SS16 collection specially highlighting Indo-western and ethnic garments. This collection had a high ting of innovation in line with consumer trends forecasted by International Design Consultants. Liva has been a vital ingredient in the entire gamut of fashion wear - western, skirts, kurtis, palazzos, etc. Manohar Samuel, President, Marketing & Business Development, Birla Cellulose, addressed the audience and stressed the importance of this event.

He said, ¨We are pleased to associate with the Garment Exporters Association of Rajasthan for the LIVA Partner Conclave 2015. Our vision of taking brand LIVA to the consumer along with our brand associates and the LAPF members has now reached greater heights with the inclusion of leading garmenters of the Garment Exporters Association of Rajasthan.¨

Reputed domestic apparel brands attended the LIVA Partner Conclave where they interacted with leading garmenters & LAPF members.

Birla Cellulose also launched a unique concept called LAPF of aggregated partners in March 2015, which saw a continuation in this meet. LAPF is a community of spinners, fabricators, & processors who work closely with Birla Cellulose on innovation, quality & technology to deliver Liva fabrics to consumers.

Co-branding opportunities
As part of the strategic programme, partners in the LAPF will use LIVA and LAPF logos on the packaging and promotional materials which aim to improve visibility and convey assurance of quality across the value chain. At the retail end, each piece of garment will have the distinguished LIVA tag that assures consumers of all that the LIVA brand stands for.

Finally, there is huge potential for Indian traditional clothing first in domestic and with the Indian Diaspora which Birla Cellulose foresees. The company feels they need to get aggressive in-terms of marketing ethnic wear. With LIVA they believe they have the right tool to reach places.
