In this issue

Each year when I look forward to the India Fashion Forum (IFF), I find it natural to feel an anxiety that only rises and settles when it’s finally over. Over the years, I have realised that it’s the energy and surprises that the industry leaders and the audience bring to the gathering that create it. If the last edition was the best convergence of the year, then the 22nd edition was bigger and had fresher energy, and everything that happened or was shared there manifested the precise pulse of the industry.

The two-day event, held at the Conrad Bengaluru, was an extensive learning experience shared by people with handson experience in the industry. These are individuals who have built brands from scratch; leaders who have introduced global brands that have created their prominence in the market; industry experts who have been observing the market with a keen eye; designers who have created collection after collection; and retailers who have helped products reach the last mile. Their convergence at one place to share what they have done, which innovations they have discovered, what mantra has worked for them, and what the industry expects makes the forum all the more profound.

To give you an overview, we have featured some of the sessions in this issue. Find out in this issue who shared the most interesting ideas, who ruled the evenings, and who has been recognised for their achievements and contributions. Last but not least, as a part of our commitment to a green planet, in addition to using recycled paper, we have used soya ink to print this issue. Compared to traditional petroleum-based ink, it’s more environmentally friendly. I do hope you enjoy the issue.

DECODES THE DNA OF PROFITABILITY

The forum, held between February 28 and March 1, 2023 was a signi cant convergence of industry captains and observers to address how businesses can ensure long-term survivability in the backdrop of India emerging as a major global market.

Hemp Fabric: An Alternative To Cotton

Just producing 1kg of cotton fibre, which roughly amounts to the production of one t-shirt and a pair of jeans, requires around 20,000 litres of water. On the other hand, producing the same amount of hemp fibre needs less than 3,000 litres of water. This means that one saves 1,000-2,000 litres of water per t-shirt. The expansive use of cotton in today’s time has hence led to serious environmental concerns, such as soil degradation, water pollution and biodiversity loss.

Blissclub: A community-first D2C brand

Minu Margeret discovered that women in India frequently have difficulty finding the right activewear due to lack of options, improper size, poor material quality, and the item's technical unsuitability for them. She felt that while some clothes were comfortable, they did not stretch enough, and those that did were too compressive. This resulted in the birth of Blissclub in 2022.
