number of sectors. The sectors broadly include:

with a substantial annual requirement for trained people. People who export apparel prefer to employ graduates in fashion designing and
technology rather than ordinary graduates.

includes the processing and weaving of all fabrics cotton, silk, wool and synthetics.
With an opening in an export house, a fashion co-ordinator needs to ensure that
fabrics and trimmings are of the correct shade, quality and design. He or she should also keep track of production schedules and be aware
of the status of the buyer`s order. Some of the garments designed may be outlandish and not really acceptable by the public. What matters
is the creativity and effort that has gone into making the design a successful one.
