Garment Show of India, a B2B exhibition that that connects the apparel retail industry of India, is witnessing participation from over 100 exhibitors from across the country. The B2B show for domestic apparel industry connecting retailers, wholesalers, distributors, e-retailers and retail chains with suppliers in North India is currently underway in Delhi.

Leading brands, manufacturers and retailers of a variety of products like ladies tops, trousers, leggings, denims, men's shirts, blazers, suits, trousers, T-shirts, kids’ wear, sportswear, ethnic, party and occasion wear are displaying their collections at the event with 'Make in India' as its theme. Participants and brands from all garment hubs like Delhi, Noida, Jaipur, Mumbai, Bangalore, Ludhiana, Kolkata, Hyderabad, Tirupur and many others are visiting the show.

"Our vision is to make Garment Show of India a one-stop platform for everyone who is involved in the apparel, fashion or retail business. The idea is to bridge the gap between buyers and sellers; our exhibition has manufacturers/brands that can offer quality, fashion and competitive prices and match up with the requirements of retailers, retail chains, e-commerce companies and distributors," said Gagan Marwah, Organiser, Garment Show of India.

Leading retail chains like Pothy’s, Chennai Silk, RMKV, Shoppers Stop, Lifestyle, Landmark Group, Bazar India, Reliance Trends, Amazon, Snapdeal, Myntra, Westside and many more are visiting the exhibition. More than 10,000 visitors are expected to visit the show over the three days.

"The Garment Industry is one of the largest industries in India and provides a livelihood to many people.  The Textile and Apparel Sector contributes 14 per cent to industrial production, 4 per cent to India's Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and constitutes 15 per cent of the country's export earnings. It employed nearly 51 million people directly and 68 million people indirectly in 2015-16," said Manoj Tiwari, BJP president, while inaugurating the show.

Since GST is a hot topic today, a wide-ranging discussion on the issue was also conducted on Day 1 of the show. Retailers and manufacturers expressed their concern over 12 per cent GST rates on ready- made garments and its impact which has been affecting market sentiments for many months now. They requested Tiwari to consider subsidised rates for garments as it comes under basic necessities and GST will make garments very costly in times to come.

The growth in apparel industry of India is a natural follow up to an increasing working population and disposable incomes. The Indian economy is a powerful magnet for concerns all over the world and a sizeable number of international brands have already entered the Indian market.

"Our mission is to work on our PM’s vision of ‘Make in India' and thus we created this platform Garment Show of India as Indian manufacturers have the expertise, craftsmanship and marketing skills to be able to produce variety and quality wear," added Marwah. (KD)
