work of Lucknow is perhaps one of the most popular embroidery works in India. It has a certain grace and elegance, which ensures that it never goes out of style. The word Chicana literally means embroidery. It is said to have been originally introduced by Cur Johan, the beautiful wife of the Maugham emperor, Jahangir. It has since evolved and attained its glory and perfection in Lucknow, Utter Preshrank. The work became popular in a number of important cities of the Ind-Genetic plain such as Delhi, Agra, Ramp, Bananas, Patna and Gay. But the supremacy of Lucknow remained unchallenged.
The designs depend for its effect on the variety of stitches used and different grades of threads used to form the patterns which include, the lace like jali, the opaque fillings and the delicacy or boldness of outline and details. The most beautiful part of chikan work is the open work ground, an effect of drawn thread work is achieved without drawing out any. Tiny raised flowers done in what seem to be French knots are balanced by the flat stem stitch and large areas of open work to prevent either a crowded or too scattered appearance.

Normally any proposed item (apparel) is made in bulk, which carries the risk of failure. Zara reduces this risk by producing in lesser quantity, instead of going for bulk production, Zara prefers fewer items. This approach gives Zara's double benefit, such as lesser risk and creating more demand by making artificial scarcity, which means it can charge more and earn extra profit.
It is natural with all objects especially fashion products; they become more desirable making them more profitable for the company. Normally it is very rare to find a product in its early launch days, a customer has to request such item, which is taken into notice by the store manager and produced within a shortest period of time. Another benefit of this approach is that if the product does sell well, it can be easily scarped back due to lesser quantity, which is not possible for other retailers or in some cases it is moved to another location, where it is selling well.
Retailers foresee profit in mass sale and bulk production. Zara instead produce more styles (new items) than any other retail store; generating profit through greater number rather than bulk production. For example Zara produces about 12000 items per year, the sooner one item is sold next is on the offer. This innovative technique makes Zara different from other retailers who plan for months and years, yet they come up with few items and limited choice, while Zara offers more choices to consumers to choose from. This also helps in pulling the consumers to visit store more often, as there is always some thing new on offer, compared to its competitors who will sell similar items for months.

Who decides What's 'Hot' and 'Not' in Fashion Trends

judgment and throw several opinions out there and observe what is grabbed.

by making our minds what to purchase and wear

Fashion is influenced by the nature that has created it, and by the styles prevailing in the society. China's fashion and retail sector is getting influenced by Australian trends. There had been a cultural exchange between Australia and China since the 1800's when silk embroidered shawls, and surcoats from China were brought into Australia. Australian women wore clothes made of velvet, georgette, and chiffon, the patterns inspired by Chinese clothing styles. Having acquired a living memory in the wardrobe of Australian women, today the trend is reversing with the Chinese customers getting the Australian fashion inspiration. Australia has a typical fashion style that discriminates it from other styles such as European fashion.

Their clothing style is comfortable with a casual attitude. China is the world's biggest apparel market, and a biggest garment exporter. Apparel market in China witnessed a drastic growth in the past decade, and its huge market size is attracting international brands. It is also one of the hottest markets, with more number of young millionaires. Among the apparel brands seen in the Chinese market one third is of foreign brands, one third is of brands whose production is taken for lease by international companies to domestic Chinese manufacturers. The remaining one third is of counterfeited products with duplicate trademarks.

American brands are lagging behind when it comes to emerging markets.

Regarding US fashion brands, only 7.5% of global searches are from BRIC countries. 69.8% are from the US itself, and 20.7% are from Europe. On the contrary, 30.5% of the searches for European brands are from BRIC countries, 24.7% are from Europe, and 41.5% are from the US. European brands such as Chanel, Dior, Louis Vuitton, Hermes, and Gucci, had the most 24.5% share from their home regions. This can be compared with the 30.5% share of the BRIC countries, and 41.5% in the US, and 3.5% in Japan. China remains as one of the primary luxury market at a global level. For fashion brands established or exploring their market in China, recent survey results indicate that sales are slowing down. Chinese market is going through a rapid transformation, and to be successful in the fast changing China, brands require refocusing their attention on China.
