|In the wake of the worldwide panic generated by the outbreak of the deadly Coronavirus, organiser Apparel Resources decided to postpone Apparel Sourcing Week 2020 to June, giving utmost priority to public health and safety of its exhibitors, speakers and visitors.
|ASW2020 may have been given new dates, but our excitement for the event remains intact. In fact, now that we have more time in hand, we are taking it in our stride and have already begun working towards making the upcoming show a huge success, even bigger and better than the earlier one. The association with top industry players to make ASW 2020 a truly memorable event for all stakeholders involved, continues. One such distinguished leader we have partnered with is Goodwear Fashions Pvt. Ltd. -- an eminent brand which has pioneered the manufacturing of high-end, world-class woven and knitted interlinings in India.
|A true 'Make in India' initiative, Goodwear Fashions began its journey over a decade ago, in 2007, and today it has become a well-known name in the industry offering international quality interlining solutions. Interlinings are fused to the outer shell of garments to give fall and drape to structured garments of high value like jackets, suit jackets, leather jackets, overcoats, blouses, shirts, trousers, ladies suit, etc.
|The interlining solutions offered by Goodwear Fashions boast of the finest quality interlinings and are manufactured using modern technology that have made the brand a trusted partner in India and overseas market. Goodwear Fashions, with its full range of interlinings, offers complete world-class solutions to the garment industry in India and the subcontinent through vertical processes of production, distribution and marketing.
|"ASW2020 provides us a perfect platform to introduce our full range of interlinings to garment factories. We also look forward to building awareness in the minds of garment merchandisers that their need for good quality interlinings can be easily met within India."
|The brand takes pride in being able to create differentiation in a market where many established interlining brands already have a major presence. "We are the only Indian producers making a range, which is otherwise offered by established interlining companies. Currently, the established companies supply around 20-25 per cent of demand, and the rest of the demand is being fulfilled by cheap, low quality Chinese imports. The value proposition of both types of suppliers is not really satisfactory for garment factories. Goodwear Fashions, being a local producer, can give Oeko-Tex certified, good high performance products, with consistent quality at a reasonable price. Plus, our ability to supply small lots off the shelf anywhere in India sets us apart. Also, we are able to offer interlinings with GRS certified yarns. We expect to be registered shortly – which will allow us to issue GRS Transaction certificates directly to our customers. This mid-market value proposition is invaluable in today's fast moving and competitive market," shares Vishal Kapoor, Director, Goodwear Fashions.
|In the coming years, the company's endeavour is to be able to provide the world garment industry with a complete range of top-quality interlinings – be it woven, non-woven, or knitted – using the finest finishing and coating technologies.
|At ASW 2020, Goodwear Fashions will be promoting its various product lines offering exceptional interlining solutions -- including Fuseline, Kanzen and Lazer. Fuseline provides the perfect interlining for a wide variety of outer-shell suit fabrics. Kanzen renders a fine finish and fall to cuffs, collars and plackets of a modern shirt. Lazer promises impeccable fall and drape to the garment through excellent suit interlinings.

The event indeed promises to deliver three days of utmost knowledge and networking along with some truly engaging activities. The mega event is scheduled to take place on 18, 19 and 20 June at the iconic Sheraton Grand Bengaluru Whitefield Hotel & Convention Center.
Apparel Sourcing Week 2023, a two-days Sourcing Show not only provides the Asian manufacturers a platform to showcase their products & manufacturing capabilities to the Brands & Retailers from all over the world including India, but also extends them a chance to attend the multiple seminars (headed by industry experts), workshops, open-house discussions and networking opportunities organised during these three days, which would help the manufacturers get a better understanding of Indian and International Retail and evolving dynamics of sourcing in various markets and retail formats.
