The two-month fair is being held virtually for the second time since last year and is scheduled to go on till September 25. The event is aimed at helping exporters from India to showcase their latest designs and apparel for the upcoming season to importers from all across the world.

Lalit Thukral, Vice-chairman, IGFA, said that, at present, they have 1,123 registered buyers and 181 registered buying agents, while 251 exhibitors are showcasing their latest collections. The number of buyers is expected to increase. He also said that the market has recovered up to 80% of its business.
