About

CII-Indian Women Network (IWN), West Bengal organised a Webinar on Reweaving Fashion on  Friday, 14 August 2020 from 1700 hrs to focus on engaging and deliberating upon the concerns of Sustainable Fashion, Luxury Fashion and Retail and e-Commerce.

The session on handloom proposed to lend focus on the issue of the artisans in the backdrop of the pandemic, work losses and slump in demand and chart a roadmap for a sustainable future for the already sensitive world of slow fashion.

The session on luxury fashion brainstormed as to how this sector must introduce new tools and strategies across the value chain to future-proof their commercial models in order to cope with new restrictions, mitigate the damaging impacts and adapt to economic and consumer shifts.

Agenda

Session I :  Handloom Fashion: Recalibrating livelihood in the fashion value chain

The fashion industry is deemed to be a “buyer driven” value chain. It consists of all the elements between the prospective customers’ known and unknown needs for textile related products and the capability of the business concept creators to fulfil this need in the most cost-effective way. The session will look into the issue of the artisans in the backdrop of the pandemic, work losses and slump in demand and chart a roadmap for a sustainable future for the already sensitive world of slow fashion.

Session II : Luxury Fashion: Present Condition amidst Covid and Future Beyond

COVID-19 has irrevocably exposed the challenges of the current business structure of the high-end fashion industry.

The session intends to brainstorm as to how this sector must introduce new tools and strategies across the value chain to future-proof their commercial models in order to cope with new restrictions, mitigate the damaging impacts and adapt to economic and consumer shifts. Haute Couture must embrace environmental, social and technological sustainability as a means to establish a competitive advantage in a recovering economy with refreshed consumer needs.
