The combined fashion and textiles show is being organized by the Cotton Textiles Export Promotion Council of India (TEXPROCIL) sponsored by the Government of India, of which only high quality, reliable manufacturers are invited to participate.

“India is currently the single largest global producer of Organic Cotton and Jute; second largest global producer of Cotton fibre, Silk yarn and Man Made Fibre,” said Mr V. S. Velayutham,Chairman, Texprocil.“We want Australia to tap into this great textile powerhouse.”

With Australia importing US$ 6165 million in textile and clothing products globally in 2008,imports from India amounted to only US$ 201 million (or 3.26%). “Brand India's aim is to showcase and re-acquaint the Australian textile, fashion and design industry to what India now has to offer in terms of creativity, quality, variety and flexibility,” said Mr V. S. Velayutham.

In recent years India has become one of the preferred sourcing destinations to most of the leading Brands worldwide: Major chain stores, such as, IKEA, Macys, Woolworths, ESPRIT, GAP, H&M, Marks & Spencer, Wal-Mart, Adidas, JC Penny and Tesco have established sourcing offices in India and are buying vast quantities of Indian Textile & Clothing.

“I am delighted to be travelling to India to source fine cotton, exquisite silks, hand beading and embroidery from India's best textile producers that will allow me to create a stunning runway collection,” said Ms Grbac. “Working with Brand India is such a unique opportunity.”
