  2. 2. DENIM CLUB INDIAJanuary 2014 03 Denim Club : Your Window To The World Of Denim Apparel - Growth DEAL JEANS optimistic about S/S business The Autumn/Winter ’13 season proved to be positive for Deal Jeans in terms of planning, timely dispatches, clearance and brand recognition. The company is now looking forward to a positive Spring/Summer booking season. Sameer Patel, Director, Deal Clothing explains “We started our S/S-14 bookings in August and have got a tremendous response. Our MRP is in control despite rise in raw material costs.” The company’s future plans include exploring overseas markets and expanding presence of its kids’wear range to large format stores. “As far as slow economy is concerned, our product range is targeted at women, for whom fast or slow economy doesn’t matter as shopping must go on,” avers Patel. Having already witnessed a positive booking season the company expects secondary sales through large format stores to bring in good results if stocks are delivered to the stores on time. Sales through MBO's depends on their own planning feels Patel. The company started in the year 2000 offering formal wear for women of 18–35 years, and gradually shifted focus to designer denim. As consumer demand grew the company introduced denim for kids and with subsequent increase in demand added tops for both women and girls in 2008 to its product basket. The

DENIM CLUB INDIAJanuary 2014 06 Denim Club : Your Window To The World Of Denim Citizens of Humanity founder Jerome Dahan is not only a denim producer, but he's an avid collector too. He has amassed 2500 to 3,000 pairs of vintage jeans in the last decade and the collection is still growing. "My team and I shop vintage a lot, at least once a week," he said. Mr. Dahan has always channeled that passion for denim past into his wares, via vintage washes and details like whiskering. Now he has taken it a step further w i t h C i t i z e n s o f Humanity's new Premium Vintage collection, a high-end, limited run of 20 styles replicating jeans that some women trawl thrift shops to find. The collection's jackets, shorts and jeans - with relaxed fit and higher rise - channel Mr. Dahan's favorite looks from the 1940s through the '90s. The throwback styles have been produced using modern fabrics and hand-finished in the brand's Los Angeles factory, allowing for improvements on the original designs. As Dahan explained, classic jeans from the '80s are slightly uncomfortable due to a combination of a high waist and stiff fabric. The version in the collection is easier to wear; it's made in a denim with a hint of stretch and a cut that makes for a slightly more forgiving fit. Citizens' launch coincides with a resurgence of vintage-look jeans on the runway, from designers like Junya Watanabe and Louis Vuitton. But Mr. Dahan cites another catwalk moment as influence - the finale bows of Céline designer Phoebe Philo, who often appears wearing vintage jeans.

Corporate Membership Fibre - Sustainable Fashion Source : www.Businesswire.com Improved Performance to Cellulosic Denim Fabrics INVISTA and Lenzing, a leading producer of man-made cellulosics such as rayon, modal, and lyocell, have begun work together to bring improved aesthetic performance to stretch fabrics. By combining INVISTA’s patented LYCRA® dualFX® fabric technology with LENZING’sTENCEL® fiber, Around a year back INVISTA began hearing about the challenges its mill customers were facing in developing stretch cellulosic fabrics. The company initiated a study to identify the underlying mechanisms of these issues and determine how to improve them. “Given the growing popularity of both LYCRA® fiber and TENCEL® fiber in the denim market, it was only natural that people wanted to combine them to come up with really amazing fabrics,” Hegedus said. “However, as mills began experimenting they encountered issues such as growth, fabrics not keeping their shape, and fabric puckering due to seam slippage.” INVISTA looked at its LYCRA® dualFX® fabric technology, which combines two stretch fibers – LYCRA® fiber and LYCRA® T400® fiber – into a single yarn. The company ran trials pairing this technology with blends of cotton and TENCEL® fiber. The trials showed significant improvement in fabric recovery and slippage to the point where the fabric performance met or exceeded INVISTA’s and the industry’s standards. Subsequently, INVISTA and Lenzing decided to work together to promote these fabrics in the marketplace. Lenzing management says it is pleased to work with INVISTA to help customers develop commercial fabrics with strong marketing attributes. Both the companies have global sales, marketing and technical teams supporting the developments and they will provide joint promotional materials as well as supply chain support and marketing information. “This initiative represents two globally innovative fiber companies working together to provide the denim market with fabrics that meet the performance needs of modern consumers,” says Michael Kininmonth, Senior Project Manager of Denim at Lenzing Fibres Inc. “Superior comfort with stretch and long-lasting recovery are set to become the next core product in women’s wear.” “LYCRA® dualFX® fabrics bring a whole new standard of performance to denim so it was only natural to extend that technology to blends with TENCEL® fiber,” said Hegedus. “We are excited to work together with Lenzing and we think both companies can bring significant value to the marketplace.” TENCEL® fiber has been reinvented by denim designers as the perfect complement to today’s fashion trends. Jeans with TENCEL® fiber are attractive, durable, and become immediate favourites thanks to their enhanced comfort. The revival of TENCEL® fiber in denim is also due in part to the environmental factor.
  7. 7. DENIM CLUB INDIAJanuary 2014 08 Denim Club : Your Window To The World Of Denim Industry The wide consumption of denim by fashion connoisseurs globally has created a new opportunity for Bangladesh, the second largest exporter of denim after China. Today denim is used to make clothes for all seasons for both men and women. Demand for denim wear is also on the rise globally. “Denim is used by all segments of people, as such fabric is comfortable and looks smart,” said Mahmuda Begum, head of the fashion design department of BGMEAUniversity of Fashion and Technology. “In the perspective of fashion, the fabric is versatile and can be used all the year round to create looks that are modern, formal or casual,” she added. This is why demand for denim is high worldwide and investors are forming large-scale plants in the country, entrepreneurs said. The number of denim makers may go over 30 from 25 at present by the year-end, said Showkat Aziz Russell, managing director of the country's largest denim maker Partex Denim. “I am confident that Bangladesh would make four in five denim items for the European market by 2020.” he further added. Bangladesh currently produces 20 million yards of denim a month, against a demand of 40 million yards per month; total investment in the denim sub-sector isTk 6,500 crore, he said. “With the new opportunity, we have plenty of work orders from the international retailers, more than our capacity even,” said Binoy Kumar Pal, general manager of Chittagong Denim, a Gazipur-based denim maker that produces nine lakh yards of the fabric a month. However, the flow of work orders in some factories has slowed due to political unrest in the country in the last six months, he added. “We have to struggle to keep up with the high volume of orders as international buyers are shifting orders from other countries like China to Bangladesh for price competitiveness,” Pal said. Alaluddin Khan, general manager of Akbar Cotton expressed that some entrepreneurs cannot set up new denim mill or expand their existing capacities due to the high bank interest rates and inadequate gas and power supplies, although the sub-sector has potential, said. “We abandoned plans to launch a Tk 100 crore denim project a few years back due to the high bank interest rate, volatile cotton market and gas crisis,” Khan toldThe Daily Star by phone. “Denim will be the next item to brand Bangladesh as we are capable of producing a high quality product at competitive prices,” said Abdus Salam Murshedy, Managing Director of Envoy Denim. “Supplying quality denim products worldwide can act as recovery after retailers lost their confidence on the country after the Tazreen Fashion fire and Rana Plaza building collapse,” Murshedy added. “With such potential, we are going to organise the country's first denim exhibition in March at Radisson Hotel, Dhaka,” said Mostafiz Uddin, Managing Director of Denim Expert Ltd, a factory at Karnaphuli Export Processing Zone in Chittagong.

Bill Curtin of New Jersey-based BPD Washhouse, said “Due to the timing all the denim collections for the season are complete which gives a better overview for visitors compared to Denim by PV.” Federation Design Studio, a first time exhibitor, who recently took over a Texas-based denim manufacturing facility, stressed the advantages of manufacturing in the USA and used the show to connect with potential new clients: “We see a movement to a return to Made in USA, so this is a Show Report : good show for us,” said Colleen Crivello of FDS. A delegation organized by The Taiwan Textile Federation (TTF) also participated in the show.A total of eight local Taiwanese denim product suppliers, displayed their denim fabrics and related products for spring and summer 2015.
