Opportunities and Challenges in Fashion Industry

Headstart Organizes #StartupSaturday on Opportunities and Challenges in Fashion Industry

Opportunities and Challenges in Fashion Industry

In a world globalized so much that a T-shirt and Bermudas would do at the workplace, you ask what is the place of fashion, especially that of the Indian fashion industry in the world? Will the handlooms that have been buzzing and clacking in remote villages and houses of India really disappear? Will the tiny by-lanes bustling with textile trade vanish from the map?

The current size of the Indian fashion industry is worth INR 1000 crore, while the market size is approximated to be INR 20,000 crore.

However, Indian fashion accounts for a meagre 0.2% in the world market. But this is expected as Indian fashion has just rolled over from infancy to the growth stage. The signs are everywhere- growing number of designers, boutiques and outlets, design schools and customers!

To discuss the challenges and opportunities in this sector, We’re bringing entrepreneurs from Fashion Industry. Join us on 14th October.
