Summary of news published since Week 18-2016

 jpa4Sibil220AMONG the news items cited this week, the launch of a swimwear collection by an Indian bodywear e-tailer ranks as a major development. If it does indeed suggest that some half a billion Indian women are taking the first step towards regarding beachwear as a significant element of the fashion scene, rather than merely as a Western fad, it could cause world production of swimwear and swimwear fabrics to double within the next two or three decades. Such an evolution would benefit not only local manufacturers but also global and local suppliers of elastane yarns and stretch fabrics as well as fabric printers. More importantly, the broader acceptance in India of swimwear, together with the associated lifestyle, could help the concept to become established in other countries that are at a comparable stage of socio-economic development. That likely evolution bodes well for the global growth prospects of branded intimate apparel generally.
