'Mauritius is reliable supplier of high-value garments'

The textile and apparel industry in Mauritius has become a reliable supplier of high-value garments, minister of industry, commerce and consumer protection Ashit Gungah has said.
 
“For more than 45 years, the Mauritian textile and apparel industry has been constantly re-inventing and re-engineering itself to maintain its niche position on the global apparel market. In doing so, the industry has emerged as a reliable and trusted supplier of high-value garments,” the minister said at the recently held Trend Forum 2016.
 
Gungah recalled that the Forum aligns with the government programme and the strategy of Enterprise Mauritius to develop and promote the fashion industry, both locally and abroad.
 
He underlined the need to promote the development of the fashion industry and to propel the 'Made in Mauritius' label products internationally. To that end, he stressed, the ministry will provide all necessary support to operators with a view to strengthening supply capacity and enable enterprises to quickly respond to fast changing trends by offering new products for every season.
 
The minister said there is a need to turn toward high-end products with more stylists. “We can see the future more confidently if we can transform the textile industry into a fashion industry. To meet this objective, training is imperative,” he said.
 
The two-day forum reviewed the latest global trends and was an exercise in knowledge sharing on how to create collections for various target markets.
 
Organised by Enterprise Mauritius in collaboration with the fashion agency HEAT Group, the event coincided with the first edition of the Mauritius Fashion Week, which was held from May 13-21.
 
Around 100 participants from the textile and fashion industry as well as independent designers, ateliers of Haute Couture, SMEs, women entrepreneurs, and fashion and design students participated in the event that included seminars, interactive workshops and networking sessions. Various themes such as key products, design concepts and key colours were presented. (RKS)
