“Sustainability is the need of the hour and keeping this in mind, many brands are opting for sustainable options. Technology too helps in a big way and this is the reason why some of our denim range can even be washed with a glass of water with the right use of technology,” Aamir Akhtar, CEO, Denims, Arvind Ltd, said..

“Denim is already used as cross product category as consumers in India are turning very discerning. There are evolved customers and brands are playing a big role. People are focussing on the importance of recycling. The whole mentality is evolving,” he added.


Their collection was introduced through engaging displays and a runway show highlighting some of the most desired features of modern-day expression of energy.
