Shoes & Accessories - - The Month That Was -

As many as 20 shoe ex­porters as­so­ci­ated with the In­dian Coun­cil for Leather Ex­ports (CLE) will ex­hibit at Fash­ion Ac­cess, Asia’s lead­ing busi­ness plat­form for footwear and fash­ion ac­ces­sories, to be held in March 2018. In­dia ac­counts for nearly 9 per cent of the global an­nual footwear pro­duc­tion of 22 bil­lion pairs, while China pro­duces over 60 per cent.

In the up­com­ing edi­tion of Fash­ion Ac­cess, sched­uled to be held in Hong Kong from March 14 to 16, the coun­cil will fo­cus on the dis­play of footwear from In­dia in a ded­i­cated footwear pavil­ion. Key pro­duc­tion cen­tres in­clude Kanpur and Agra in Ut­tar Pradesh, Ra­nipet, Vaniyam­badi and Am­bur in Tamil Nadu.

The par­tic­i­pat­ing footwear com­pa­nies in­clude Su­per­house, Sid­dharth Ex­ports, Dawar Footwear In­dia, Gupta Over­seas, Rana Over­seas Shoes, Deepak Im­pex, Ram Fash­ions, Sahyog Ex­port, Tryshoera (In­dia), and Arvind Footwear.

At the in­ter­na­tional ex­hi­bi­tion, the coun­cil will seek to high­light the op­por­tu­ni­ties present in In­dia to per­suade lead­ing brands and buy­ers to col­lab­o­rate with In­dian com­pa­nies and man­u­fac­ture in In­dia un­der the fa­cil­i­tat­ing Make in In­dia ini­tia­tive, aimed at tap­ping the huge In­dian mar­ket and ex­port­ing to over­seas coun­tries.

“Over the years CLE mem­bers have been hav­ing such pre­sen­ta­tions of In­dian leather at Asia Pa­cific Leather Fair Ltd and to some ex­tent of leather ac­ces­sories and gar­ments at Fash­ion Ac­cess; but footwear has not been high­lighted. The ded­i­cated In­dian Footwear Pavil­ion at Fash­ion Ac­cess is to show­case In­dian footwear in a fo­cused man­ner as Hong Kong—an im­por­tant part­ner in In­dia’s leather sec­tor trade— is the des­ti­na­tion with max­i­mum ex­ports af­ter the US and main Euro­pean mar­kets,” said chair­man of the coun­cil, Mukhtarul Amin.
