We are overwhelmed by the response we received from the industry in response to our completing three years in Bangladesh – A Big Thank You again! Apparel Online acknowledges the same by publishing some of these replies; we regret that due to space constraints we are unable to accommodate all of them. What better gift could the Team AO ask for from the industry! Honouring some of the suggestions from our readers for improvement of AO magazine, we have introduced three new columns in the magazine – ‘RetailerCurrent’, ‘BeyondBD’, and ‘AOB Pick of the Month’. Giving a serious concern to the depleting water level in Bangladesh, several textile companies have taken a lead role in this direction. AO spoke to three popular textile companies – Micro Fibre Group, Landmark Group, and Giant Group, to know more about their key interventions taken up in this direction. Not to miss is our story on Activewear, a potential product category in Bangladesh, but due to small order quantities and lack of expertise in fabric manufacturing, it’s not picking up… Last but not the least, Team AOB salutes BGMEA for helping Nepal earthquake victims by handing over 200 cartons containing various clothing products. Besides the above, articles in Resource Centre, Tech Management and Fashion pages, make the magazine more interesting and readable.
