Increase in sales of the domestic designer brand would be able give an impetus to its fashion sector as well as boost the development of the country’s economy, he added.
 
Mr. Chevere said the CCE is also in talks with one of the major commercial centers in the country to establish a seasonal store for selling the creations.
 
As of the now the brand’s clothing is available online, through a link from the CCE’s Media digital platform, he added.
