Delhi garment fair to open on Jan 18
India International Garment Fair (IIGF), which will be held in New Delhi from January 18 to 20, 2017, is aimed at helping exporters from India showcase their latest designs and apparels for the upcoming season, and expected to attract buyers from all over the world. India’s rich heritage of fabrics mixed with its artisans offers buyers a staggering range. Indian factories can also produce small runs and offer a variety of embellishments giving more value to the customer.
With the dynamics of the global garment and apparel industry changing considerably in the last couple of years, the industry is shifting to India, the world’s most diversified clothing exporter.
IIGF is the flagship event of the Apparel and Export Promotion Council (AEPC). It has been building bridges between global buyers and suppliers from India for the last three decades. For this edition, AEPC has partnered with virtual fashion trade show platform Fashionablyin to create a virtual buyers’ lounge. Fashionablyin aims to make buyer trips more efficient by engaging them with the right suppliers. The company will match buyers with suppliers by planning meetings in advance and facilitating discussions with suppliers. The Fashionablyin Virtual Buyers Lounge will be great place for buyers and suppliers to connect and build relationships in a friendly and casual environment.
