Tirupur: The 31st India Knit Fair (IKF) planned here from October 6 to 8 will act as a platform for the apparel makers to leap into higher levels of fashion, according to IKF chairman and president of Federation of Indian Export Organisations (FIEO) A. Sakthivel.
He told reporters recently that the fair would showcase the autumn/winter/mid-summer collections of the Indian exporters meant for 2011.
Some of the value-added items like swim wears, pullovers, fabrics made of organic cotton, apparels made from synthetic fibres, seamless garments, washed-look apparels and structured garments, among others, would be displayed.
Mr. Sakthivel reiterated the need to diversify from cotton-based knitwear products to apparels made of man-made fibres if the garment exporters from Tirupur should ensure themselves round-the-year business.
“Heavy dependency on cotton-based apparels will restrict the export opportunities to very small segment of the markets abroad and hence, the exporters should utilise the opportunity available at the IKF to showcase their value-added garments to the foreign buyers,” he said.
