How did a 100 billion garment industry base come into being?
In the early 1980s, reform and opening up stimulated the market vitality, and China's modern light industry also sprouted in this period. A number of Changshu garment enterprises, such as Fuyi, Qiuyan, KangBo and Bixi woolen sweater factories, began to provide processing services for Shanghai, Suzhou and other surrounding cities.
In 1985, Changshu zhaoshang Mall (the predecessor of Changshu clothing city) was formally established with 35 professional markets including men's clothing center, women's clothing center and children's clothing center. At that time, the number of employed people in textile and clothing industry was nearly 75000, and the output of one market accounted for more than 30% of the city's at that time.
By the 1990s, clothing categories were enriched, and a number of brands such as bosden, ganrengang, Qiuyan and Santa Fe developed. Changshu gradually formed the industrial advantages of down wear and casual men's wear. Foreign trade clothing enterprises also developed continuously. The industrial clusters of weft knitting in Guli, warp knitting in Meili and flat knitting machine in Bixi had taken shape.
