India can become fashion hub of the world: Piyush Goyal

Delhi

With the fast-growing fashion industry in the country, India has the potential to become the fashion hub of the world, according to Union Textiles Minister Piyush Goyal.

The minister said that the spirit of self-reliance can be channelised by helping weavers and artisans get their rightful dues. He was addressing the convocation ceremony at NIFT, Delhi. Design, packaging, and branding for the products of artisans can give them good returns and the students can consider working with them in this direction, Goyal said.

He said the Indian quality should define what world-class is and the institute has a major role to play. Established in 1986, NIFT has been contributing immensely to the fashion industry of India. Goyal also asked NIFT (National Institute of Fashion Technology) students and alumni to empower weavers and artisans of the country by connecting them to the market.

NIFT students have the means to put our rich tradition in textile, design, and embroidery on a global platform. India has the potential to become the fashion hub of the world. NIFT can nurture innovative ideas for fabrics and textiles of India," he added.

NIFT, Delhi, is engaged in 12 prestigious projects ranging from uniform design, product design to visual merchandising. The Combat Uniform of the Indian Army project is one of them with a total project cost of Rs 103.20 lakh.
