INTEGRATED APPAREL DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME
Integrated Apparel Development Programme aims at integrated development of Apparel Sector in India especially in Kerala and to promote employment and self employment opportunities.
Our mission is to implement an integrated development of the Apparel sector in Kerala giving opportunity to the existing conventional tailors to update and grow them by becoming a part of this scheme. The project will be implemented step by step as different phases and aiming at Kerala becoming a State famous for apparel Industry.
The objectives of the Programme are as follows:
National Skill India Mission is a Division of Bharat Sevak Samaj, National Development Agency promoted by the planning Commission, Government of India to ensure public co-operation for implementing government plans. As part of nation building policy BSS entered into the arena of undertaking developmental programmes and projects in various fields. The basic aim behind the implementation of all these programmes is the socio-economic upliftment of the society, and majority of the programmes are focused on employment development. National Skill India Mission (Nsim)was originated as per the recommendations of Bureau of Parliamentary Studies and Training (BPST), Loka Sabha, Govt. of India to provide training and skill development to the youth of our country covering each and every village/city and to empower all individuals through improved skills, knowledge and employment opportunities.
The basic aim behind the implementation of all these programmes is the socio-economic upliftment of the society In India, especially in Kerala. The second and the most important aim is the Integrated Development of the Apparel Sector in Kerala. The third aim is the satisfaction of customers who are not satisfied by any of the existing systems to own a fashionable dress, and giving them an opportunity to become a part in designing their own dress. Earlier there were so many Tailoring Shops in Kerala, two or three Tailors doing Tailoring works to earn their life. Now we see that most of them are closed since not economical. There are so many small industries in Apparel Sector, They may be Fashion Designing, Stitching Centres, Stitching as Job work, small manufacturing Units, small sales units or a combination of one or two of the above. Now they are getting only low income because of the low customer demand. It is known that even the latest large scale textiles are not profitable. It is because the customers have changed their tastes and purchasing habits. A major portion of the customers are now depending on online markets for their selection and purchase of ready to wear dresses. Even now the customers are not fully satisfied, only because they are not able to select dresses as per their taste or there is no option for the customer’s innovations to fulfill to their 100% satisfaction. A customer can only be satisfied only when he/she is able to select a garment after wearing it. But in a showroom of Textiles, there is limitation of number of dresses one can wear and see their image in a mirror, before purchase is done. The salesmen have to show huge no. of verities of fabrics to the customer, for the purchase of a single dress. These are the drawbacks of the conventional method.
It is in this context we propose a new idea which is a solution to the above problems.
Fashion Studio is a new concept. It is a shop which does not store any dress materials. Instead there will be a large collection of 3D photos/ videos which will be displayed on a Digital Mirror. In these photos and videos, the customer can visualize different models and patterns of dresses suitable for any age, any size and any sex, and the customer can visualize his/ her image in the screen, wearing the selected dress. There will be an expert designer in the shop who can design a dress according to the taste of the customer, by using computer software. After seeing the image on the screen if the customer suggests slight changes or modifications, that also can be done with the help of software up to the satisfaction of the customers, and can visualize his/her image, wearing the newly designed dress. This process of Fashion designing is actual Customized Fashion Designing, satisfying 100% customer needs and customer satisfaction.
The Designs done in the Design Studios are channelized to the Pattern making Centres for Pattern making. The development of a garment comprises of different process. Fit is the most important factor leading to the final acceptance or rejection of a garment. Good customized fit is dependent on the pattern drafting incorporating various shapes and proportions of the individual customer. With the onset of the Industrial Revolution, standardized patterns were essential to the success of ready-to-wear clothing.
Pattern making is an art. It is the art of manipulating and shaping a flat piece of fabric to conform to one or more curves of the human figure. Pattern making is a bridge function between design and production. A sketch can be turned into a garment via a pattern which interprets the design in the form of the garment components (pieces of cut fabrics).
The cut fabrics are then channelized to the Production Centre, where the fabric is converted into finished garments. Here also skill is an important factor. The skilled Sewing Machine Operators in the Production Centres, stitch the fabric to form as it was designed in the Fashion studio.
RAW MATERIAL STOCKING CENTRES:
These are the store areas where a large collection of fabrics are stored. Here a fabric is subjected to quality check before taking into stock. If it maintains the required quality, enough stock is kept here. According to the requirement of the fabric, it is forwarded to pattern making centres for pattern making.
COURIER & LOGISTIC CENTRES:
Courier & Logistic Centres are usually attached with the production Centres, where the finished garments are dispatched to the Fashion Studio.
Training Centres are units where Training is given to fresh candidates on courses which are suitable to different jobs in our Fashion Studios, Pattern making Centres or production units. The passed out candidates are also fit for the works in other apparel industries or even good for self employment.
