Elevating each segment of the entire value chain of the textile industry, the state of Gujarat is all set to host Farm to Fashion: Indian Textile Global Summit 2018. The three-day premiere summit being held on May 4-6, 2018 will provide a common platform for the entire value chain of textiles to deliberate and develop a vision for the industry for 2030.

The global summit being organised by Gujarat Chamber of Commerce and Industry (GCCI) in association with Maskati Cloth Market Mahajan (MCMM), aims to achieve the intangible aspects of quality communications within the textile industry players. The Farm to Fashion Summit 2018 will provide a great opportunity for networking of more than 150 exhibitors, over 1,000 delegates, government officials and various representatives of the textile industry from various parts of the country.

Gujarat, known for its textile industry, was once known as the Manchester of India. The textiles industry is labour intensive and is the second largest employer in India, after agriculture, employing about 52 million people directly and 68 million people indirectly. The textile event will develop a vision for the industry 2030 with key focus on issues faced by cotton farmers, women empowerment, youth employment opportunities and positioning of Indian textile industry as the pioneer in environment-friendly industry practices.

The Textile Summit will encompass content-rich conference with 17 technical sessions by global speakers, exhibition with focus on best of Indian fabrics, café corners, fashion show and industrial visit. Experts and scholars will offer information and unveil insights about latest research, trends, innovations, best practices along with the solutions to the challenges at hand. Living up to its name, Farm to Fashion will showcase exclusive ranges of clothing lines with an iconic fashion show by few of country's distinguished fashion designers, apparitional stylists and leading fabric companies of the world.

"Gujarat is the highest cotton growing state, yet it falls behind in manufacturing all products across the textile value chain from Farm to Fashion. If we can bridge this gap, then Gujarat’s revenue from textile will increase. This will also reduce the cost of transportation. Gujarat has a better infrastructure than other states. Farm to Fashion is an initiative to fill this gap. Gujarat is growing cotton and we would like to complete this value chain from Farm to Fashion, to realise PM Modi’s 5F Formula—farm to fibre, fibre to factory, factory to fashion, fashion to foreign," said Mr. Shailesh Patwari, President, GCCI. He added that the summit will deliberate upon the opportunity and challenges in various areas such as cotton, ginning, spinning, weaving, processing, garmenting, technical textiles, environment management, and skill development in detail.
