Quality should not be “inspected into” a garment after it has been made, instead quality should always be “manufactured into” a garment at every step and checked repeatedly during production. Quality plays a very vital role in any manufacturing industry irrespective of its niche and size, the fashion industry not being an exception. Poor quality products not only tarnish the brand’s reputation but also leads to customer dissatisfaction, which in turn affects future sales. There is no way to deliver high-quality products without a comprehensive quality control system in place.
