Many exporters back again to exhibit at ASW 2022

With Apparel Sourcing Week 2022 inching closer, more and more garment manufacturers that have been part of the inaugural edition of the Asia’s much-awaited sourcing event, are coming onboard again!

It’s the value proposition of the event, which is drawing new and old companies in large numbers!

100 top handpicked garment manufacturers from across Asia’s manufacturing destinations along with 50 producers/suppliers of fabric and accessories from different apparel manufacturing strongholds based on their vital parameters of competency, quality, commitment, compliance and delivery, will showcase their latest collections to over 3,000 plus visitors from across the globe not to mention the sourcing teams of the renowned global and domestic brands and retailers operating in the country.

After the great response received at the inaugural edition of the event, Bangladesh-based Pacific Jeans has decided to be a part of the ASW 2022 again as it looks to forge business relations with new set of brands and buyers (operating in India) to make further inroads into the vibrant Indian fashion retail sector.

“India is a very prospective market in terms of opportunities; it is predicted that almost a billion people will join the ranks of the middle class by 2025 in India. Changing demographics and favourable trends in urbanisation show that a massive shift towards a middle-class society is already in the making and, keeping the same in perspective, there is a huge opportunity in India,” states Syed Md Tanvir, the Managing Director of Pacific Jeans of Bangladesh, who has now ventured into workwear manufacturing as well to diversify product offerings.

Vertically integrated Pakiza Group is another big name from Bangladesh garment industry, which has decided to take part in ASW 2022 for a second time on the trot!

“India is a very promising export destination for ‘Made in Bangladesh’ apparels. Thanks to India’s massive fashion retail sector and its huge population with its growing economic prowess, the demand for quality and competitively-priced apparels is only going to increase,” says Managing Director of Pakiza Group, Rakibul Islam Khan echoing the same sentiments as Tanvir.

From innerwear to swimwear to regular knit items, Pakiza has vastly diversified its product basket (within knit) lately and is hopeful that business in India is going to double in the next few years.

So, if you are looking to make your mark in the Indian fashion retail sector, there’s no better platform than ASW.

See you in Bengaluru on 1st and 2nd of July 2022.
