EVENTS FLASH
Seamless clothing started with a bang in India with Personal Creations, Flying Fashion and Precise Seamless Apparels (PSA) making their initial investment in seamless knitting machines around the same time in 2008. In the ‘November 2008 issue of StitchWorld’, the investment, strategies and future plans of all these three companies was highlighted along with the nitty-gritty of manufacturing seamless clothing.

Silver Star Fashions: Making the best out of high-fashion garments and below 2,000 order quantities

Taking a less explored route, Silver Star Fashions has invested in building systems whereby the factory is now in a position to accept high-fashion garments’ (women’s and kidswear) orders wherein the quantities do not climb any higher than 2,000. “The idea behind initiating the move is the logic that in much lesser infrastructure you can generate more revenue,” points out Sidhant Dhingra, Director, Silver Star Fashions. Naturally, while the FOBs in such products run high, so does the work content. The challenge is to streamline the entire process while keeping the margins intact. And it takes a keen eye, immensely precise technical aptitude and ample entrepreneurial acumen to extract business opportunity from small order quantities of high-fashion wear.

We have been organizing weekend workshops (in a group of not more than 16 delegates) for quite some time now and our latest one on ‘Implementing Lean Sigma in Apparel Manufacturing’ was a huge success. On the second day of the two-day workshop (May 30-31), we had to announce the repeat of the same on 13th and 14th of June 2015. A real transition of the industry from ‘I know it all’ to learning with experts and through sharing..., especially on Saturdays and Sundays says a lot. Encouraged by the response we have received, we are determined to upscale our workshop initiative with more industry-focused topics and inviting subject experts from within the industry to be a part of the initiative.

Over a very short period of time, Texprocess has developed into a very important technology platform for industries in Europe, including Eastern Europe. Few participants from South-east Asia, majorly for industrial products, were also present. The event sees international celebrities and industry’s ‘who’s who’ converge to share thoughts and best practices. It has become a ‘front runner event’ to check the pulse of the sewn industry and also updates on new technologies, strategies and directions. The recently concluded edition held in Germany was no different.
