CMAl strides into the global arena with ‘BRANDS OF INDIA – with its objective of TAKING INDIA TO THE WORLD.
The Indian textiles industry has emerged as a world leader with its capacity to produce an extensive range of products suitable for varied market segments, both within India and globally.
Indian textiles and apparel not only match rigid international quality standards, but are more accessible with their competitive pricing.
Apparel manufacturers of India are placed amongst the best in the world, with a rich legacy of fine fabrics including its cotton, silk and denim. Equally renowned for their intricate craftsmanship that cuts across the entire value chain from fibre and yarn to the final finished product, Indian apparels have triumphed in fashion centres around the world.
Under the aegis of CMAI, Brands of India is the first-ever show of 250+ choicest Indian
Apparel Brands under one roof to be held at Dubai World Trade Centre, UAE.
It promises to be a spectacular show of the choicest Indian apparel brands in the categories of men’s wear, women’s wear and kids wear – in casuals, ethnic and western formals. A one-of-its-kind opportunity for retailers, chain &departmental stores, wholesalers, agents, distributors, franchisees, importers, traders, e-commerce platforms and buying houses from GCC and African countries to discover and connect with these select brands.

thei products match the quaity standards and tashion trends ofinternational brands.
With a view to empower these brands to expand their horizons globally, Brands of India is CMAl’s maiden initiative for the world to experience first-hand and acknowledge the phenomenon that the Indian fashion industry is.”
JAYESH SHAH Chairman
Brands of India Sub Committee said ,”The Emirate of Dubai’s exceptional placement on the coast of the Persian Gulf makes it the perfect gateway to three
continents – Asia, Africa and Europe. A centre for regional and
international trade, Dubai will now witness something extraordinary for the first time ever – the BRANDS OF INDIA show. A never-before exhibition of 250+ Indian Apparel Brands, both established and new, all under one single roof – at the prestigious Dubai World Trade Centre.
He said ,There is a substantial Indian diaspora of 13.4M in the African and the GCC Regions who are aware of Indian Fashion Brands and trends. Every Indian celebration, festival or wedding, is celebrated by expats in true desi style, in all the splendour of ethnic clothes. To meet this demand, the finest of ethnic wear will be on display at the event. Nothing can match Indian apparel brands when it comes to value for money, range of fabrics, on-trend designs and fine craftsmanship. The exhibiting brands are carefully picked for the special demands and needs of expat Indians unlike other international brands.

RAJESH MASAND
President Brands of India said ,
“The Indian manufacturers employ state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities, which has enabled them to create a niche for themselves in the Indian market. Now, with their experience in marketing their Brands in the Indian market as well as manufacturing for their Global Buyers, these Brands have developed the skill sets required for launching their Brands in the Global Markets.
Indian Apparels have been taking huge strides within the GCC countries and African markets. Apparel imports in these 2 regions were valued at US$ 11460M and US$ 4850M respectively in 2022. Indian apparel exports to these regions were US$2426M and US$ 913M making India’s contribution a solid 21% and 19%. And, an added incentive to source Indian apparel is also the fact that imports from India are duty-free due to the benefits offered by CEPA.
Therefore, with a view to empower our Members to expand their horizons globally, and to encourage the world to experience first-hand and acknowledge the phenomenon that the Indian fashion industry is, CMAl is organising the BRANDS OF INDIA SHOW in Dubai which will provide an ideal platform to the Indian Apparel Brands to showcase their Products to the Global Markets.
