HEPC/Projects / 2017                                                                     15 March 2017


All Members / RTEs


Dear member exporters,

As a measure to offer value added services to the member exporters, HEPC has recently subscribed to WGSN – World’s Global Style Network, a leading trend forecasting service organisation armed with a style driven business across 89 countries.

2. HEPC in association with NIFT, New Delhi has started publishing article interpreting the WGSN color and design trends  in Council’s  monthly newsletter  with effect from January 2017 edition . So far two articles have been published covering color and design trends for the season Spring Summer 2018 and series of such articles will be published in upcoming editions covering all themes for the season. The article covers the aspects of color palette for the upcoming season and its usage in textile products along with other inputs on   design, textures, weaves, yarn and surface ornamentation. Council is of the view that such color and design inputs will provide an insight for member exporters in developing their products suiting to market trend .The information is also being communicated through email to all member exporters.

3. Since it is a maiden attempt of the Council, members are requested to offer their views  on:

i) usefulness of such design / trend inputs for exporters

ii) Improvements suggested so that trend inputs can be made more useful to exporters.


Yours Sincerely,



Export Promotion Officer
