expertise along with technical support to build such a comfort level with customers, which would make them feel that they are in the right place to get the true competitive merchandize with outstanding quality as long as the prices are reasonable.

Fabric Source

As a primary check to ensure quality, DRESS FASHION guides suppliers as to proper source of fabric and identify industries which can deliver in time, good quality fabric of desired weight, construction and color etc.

Identify Supplier

Every factory DRESS FASHION deals with is evaluated at two levels:
ˇ To assess capacity and capability.
ˇ To check environmental control and adherence to Labor Laws.

Sampling
DRESS FASHION arranges sampling from appropriate suppliers as per buyers designs, sketches etc.Samples against orders and Promotional samples sent by suppliers are free of charge. However, sometimes samples which requires exact details for which DRESS FASHION pays the supplier for the cost of development.
Prices
DRESS FASHION scrutinizes prices quoted by the supplier and with its own experience of the cost structure in the country, obtain the most realistic prices from them. Once a price is set the company adds a certain percentage of mark up on the cost to offer a price to the customers. This mark up ranges from 3%-10% on the total cost per unit.
Quality Control

Once an order has been placed with a supplier, DRESS FASHION takes the Following steps to see that only correct merchandise is shipped:

ˇ DRESS FASHION draws samples of fabric to be used and check its quality, weight, shrinkage, color fastness, etc. For these test to be conducted, we have just started our in house laboratory with necessary workforce and Technologies. It calls for lab dips and obtain buyers' approval of shades before bulk fabric is dyed.

ˇ Before any production starts, DRESS FASHION obtains approved sample and check it minutely in all respects such as size specification, workmanship, Cleanliness and proper fit of the garment.

ˇ DRESS FASHION also suggests from time to time, possible improvements in production process to improve workmanship and get perfect merchandise.

ˇ DRESS FASHION's quality controllers visit factories at regular intervals, making surprise checks, to see that only the correct quality is produced and reject sub-standard and defective pieces in the production pipeline itself.

ˇ When the consignment is ready, DRESS FASHION carries out systematic inspection as suggested by its buyers. If the merchandise is found satisfactory, DRESS FASHION issues a certificate of inspection.
