Coronavirus spread is hugely affecting all of us. A large part of humanity is under lockdown and businesses are shut. Stores in most of the western countries have shut down and retailers are canceling orders en masse. The entire supply chain is crippled and people are totally confused.
The impact of the corona is being felt across all industries and our industry is no exception. Denim professionals are confused about what they need to do and how to prepare for the future. The nature of the industry is likely to be changed in the coming months and we all need to prepare for the same. Even though the coronavirus situation might improve in the near future, the working patterns of our (and other) industry will change. The logics which seemed so apparent before may not apply now.
Keeping all this in mind, we had started our Live Chat on Instagram webinars with some important denim personalities globally so that we, and the others, could make out some sense of what is happening and get some idea of what will happen in the future.
Our recent live interaction discussions are as follow, please have a look and do not forget to follow our Instagram page at https://www.instagram.com/denimsandjeans/?hl=en
