Farm to Fashion summit generates business worth ₹1,000 cr
With over 1,500 buyers from various countries at Farm to Fashion, the Indian Textile Global Summit has successfully generated business worth ₹1,000 crore in just 3 days. The recently concluded event from May 4-6 was a gateway to endless global opportunities. Bringing together the stakeholders on one platform, the summit discussed opportunities and challenges to elevate the Indian textile on a global scale.

The summit organised by the Gujarat Chamber of Commerce & Industry (GCCI) and Maskati Cloth Market Mahajan (MCMM) provided a platform for the textile value chain to develop a vision for textiles industry for 2030.

The content-rich conference at the summit deliberated on various topics covering the entire value chain of textile industry such as co-operative farming, ginning, spinning, weaving, processing, garments, exports, etc. The exhibition focused on the best Indian fabrics and showcased the strength of Gujarat in fabrics industry. A fashion show was also organised under the ambit of the summit and living up to its name, Farm to Fashion showcased exclusive ranges of clothing lines by MSMEs, apparitional stylists and leading fabric companies of the world. An industrial visit to composite textile unit was also organized for learning best technology and processes.

"We held 12 different conference sessions during the three-day event where several national and international speakers discussed various challenges and solutions. It will be our sincere attempt to present the outcome of these conferences in the form of a white paper to the government. We want the government to incorporate the inputs in the yet-to-be-announced textiles policy. Our vision for textiles and garment industry for 2030 is for India to shine in the field of textiles, for which a proper policy structure is vital," said GCCI president Shailesh Patwari.

"It is for the first time that the industry is focusing on Farm to Fashion. It was an opportunity to meet customers and manufacturers from various regions of the country. The fair is well organised and it should be held on yearly basis. The event should be promoted on the national and international level for the growth of the Indian textiles industry," said Parth Ahuja of KR Creation, an exhibitor at the summit.

"We could connect with stakeholders from Farm to Fashion. It was a platform for interaction to identify difficulties in the sector and improve the qualities in terms of demand and supply. We hope that this fair continues for next 20 years as it will help the buyers and sellers to bond, which will be beneficial in the long run," Naveen Nandi, assistant vice-president (operations), Komal Texfab Private Limited, another exhibitor.
