Indian value-added garment sector can witness good exporting opportunities in South African market. The rising labour problems and high fabric costs in South Africa has been affecting the value-added garment industry of South Africa and making it difficult for their domestic industry to manufacture highvalue garments. Indian value-added garment manufacturers can thus look forward to South African market for exports.

Mr J J Schoeman, a renowned and high profile fashion designer from South Africa revealed the fact during his visit to India. Mr Schoeman is currently in India where he is meeting with the manufacturers and suppliers of high-value garments. Mr Schoeman described the opportunities in South Africa for value-added garments and urged Indian garment exporters to avail of the same. He was addressing the seminar in New Delhi on 'Value Added Garments Exports to South Africa' arranged by Apparel Export Promotion Council (AEPC) the apex body of apparel exporters of India.

Mr Schoeman felt that Indian garment manufacturers can ensure a precision quality delivery across fashion segments on a global scale. According to him, “The South African market can pose a very good opportunity for Indian garment exporters in the area of hand embroidery work. It offers an edge to them as the fabric like georgette, siphon are easily available in India with the rate that is much lower than the rate prevailing in South Africa.” Mr Schoeman also discussed Spring/Summer fashion forecast for 2012. He described fashion trends in the ladies gowns segment, as well.

He also said that now the trend for designer kids garment is growing in South African market. Adding further, he said, “It will be a very big market and shall provide wide opportunities for manufacturers of Kid Garment to enter the South Africa.”

The seminar was part of AEPC's initiative to update the apparel industry stakeholders about various global exporting opportunities and fashion trends prevailing in developed markets. Mr Vimal Kirti Singh, Secretary General of AEPC said, “The South African market looks very promising for Indian garment exporters. With cost competitiveness and the quality product capabilities, Indian garment manufactures can occupy a good chunk of high-end garment market in South Africa. Further, the seminar will help our members understand various fashion trends prevailing in South African market.”

The seminar addressed fashion designers, merchandisers and market consultants and students from fashion institutes like IAM.
