December was a very busy month for all of us at IMAGES Business of Fashion, but it gives me immense pleasure to let you all know that, with everyone’s support and contribution, the 20th Edition of the India Fashion Forum turned out to be one of the biggest in its history. I congratulate all the participants, the winners of IFA and thank all those who have been associated with it and made it possible. For those who missed the event, IMAGES BoF will bring you a detailed report on all the key sessions and deliberations over the next fewissues.
The June issue of Images Business of Fashion is led by a research on the Indian casualwear market, its size, growth, evolution and key trends and opportunities and growth over the years. The issue also talks to smart casual leaders like the Denmark-based clothing company–Bestseller, Raymond Apparel Ltd’s Parx, and French born fashion major Celio. It also features Tom Tailor’s online collaboration for India.
