Fabric Sourcing and Market Survey at Surat and Mumbai

Fabric Sourcing and Market Survey at Surat and Mumbai

Fabric sourcing and market Survey was conducted by II year students of Fashion Design Department at Surat and Mumbai from 22nd February to 26th February 2018.

The Objective was to provide the basic knowledge of different type of fabrics available in market, how to differentiate between original fabric and artificial one. To know about current trends, their cost and material selection.

Fabric sourcing can be sometimes a tough challenge faced by Fashion designers. Out of the total cost of manufacturing a garment piece, the cost of fabric can contribute between 50 and 65 per cent. Furthermore, even a minor oversight in selecting the right fabric and right manufacturer may spoil the entire apparel programme.

The whole trip was successfully conducted under the guidance of Prof. Divya Dhakad and Mr. Harshal Mahajan, Fashion Designer from Mumbai.
