REPRESENTATIVES of the Fiji Textile, Clothing and Footwear (TCF) Council will attend the upcoming Australia International Sourcing Fair (AISF).

The AISF will be held at the Sydney Exhibition Centre in Darling Harbour from November 20 to 22.

The TCF Council in partnership with the Fiji government has been active in training and developing more qualified personnel to handle the particular requisites of premier fashion design worldwide.

According to the council, "the main aim of TCF is to promote Fiji's many competitive advantages that include quality assurance commitments that position Fiji's elite nation status as a garment manufacturer."

The council said the engineering and re-tooling in the Fiji factories had brought major buyers into Fiji in record numbers.

The council said Fiji manufacturers were quite diverse and touched on most areas of garment manufacturing.

"It makes all the sense in the world that someday Fiji's propensity for small and high quality runs will meet up with the fashion world's ever unsaturated desire to be unique," said the council. The companies attending the AISF show are Danam Ltd, Jack's Garments, Mark One Apparel, PFD Fiji Ltd, Ranjit Garments, United Apparel, Intimate Apparel and Nagsun Apparel.
