Vietnamese apparel companies face a host of obstacles from globalization and industrialization, especially in the context of the changing pace of fashion, a seminar entitled “Is Vietnam’s Apparel Industry Ready for Fast Fashion?” held a few days ago in Ho Chi Minh City by ThreadSol, a fast-growing Singapore-based technology company in the apparel industry, heard.

In cooperation with the Vietnam Textile and Garment Association (VITAS), ThreadSol organized its second edition of the Apparel Tech Up Forum Vietnam series to discuss issues and solutions for Vietnam’s apparel manufacturers in coping with the rapidly growing trend of fast fashion, within the context of the Vietnam International Textile & Garment Industry Exhibition (VTG).

Over recent years, Vietnam has become a destination for major international fast fashion brands thanks to its large and young population and increasing incomes. Brands such as ZARA, H&M, Topshop, and Mango are rushing to set up more shops around the country.

The seminar welcomed a number of Vietnam’s leading apparel manufacturers, who heard speeches and presentations from representatives of VITAS and ThreadSol, providing an overview of Vietnam’s apparel industry, in particular the problems faced by manufacturers due to the changing pace of fashion.

The seminar also featured a panel discussion that gave those in attendance a closer look at how manufacturers can rely on a combination of technology and best practice to deliver timely output without compromising on quality or cost, adapting their business operational structure and management model to the new context of the fast fashion market.

ThreadSol’s solutions enable apparel companies in Vietnam to turn challenges into opportunities, assisting manufacturers in boosting their topline (revenue) and bottom line (profit) directly. Right from buying accurate amounts of fabric through intelloBuy and shipping 3 per cent more garments with the same amount of fabric through intelloCut, these solutions can help manufacturers boost their revenue and profit.

“By anticipating change and placing customers’ needs at the heart of our technology, ThreadSol is committed to continually innovating, helping our customers succeed in a fast-evolving industry,” said Mr. Saurav Ujjain, Business Head of ThreadSol South East Asia.

Both intelloBuy and intelloCut have been adopted by leading manufacturers in Vietnam such as Luenthai (Oceans Sky VN), Duc Hanh, Fashion Garments Limited, Saitex, and Tristate (Upgain VN).

ThreadSol was established in 2012 to challenge manufacturing industries with its innovative solutions. Over 120 customers in 15 geographies plan 1 billion garments through its solutions every year.
