India’s first denim show Denimsandjeans will be held in Bangalore from September 25 to 26, 2017. The denim show will attract some of the most reputed denim mills, including top local and international garment manufacturers, together on one platform. The show brings together major stakeholders in the supply chain.
Key retailers, buying houses and factories from India as well as from Europe, Southeast Asia and the US are expected to visit the show. Denim has been one of the main textile segments in India in the past decade. The capacity of Indian mills to produce denim fabrics has risen over 300 per cent, making India stand second only to China globally. Over 500 million jeans are being sold in India, which is a little more than the 490 million jeans sold in the US. This gives India the distinction of being the second largest consumer of denim apparel after China.
India is set to get a big lead over the US and the EU in the coming years, as consumption increases in Tier II and III cities. Denimsanjdeans is a premium fashion website dedicated to the denim industry and has hosted seven denim shows in Bangladesh and two in Vietnam.
