Over the last decade VI Sigma has invested heavily into design. The company recognises the need for designers to be located close to customers to reflect the local trends and markets.
The design teams are located in our London and Barcelona offices. They work closely with our customers to understand their unique identity, combining this with their in depth knowledge of Pakistan’s unique product handwriting.
Designers from all the global offices share trend information and feedback from customers, while working hand in hand with the product developers in the Lahore office.
The team regularly travels to shows, to shop, to meet customers and to visit factories and mills. They are continuously researching the latest trends and developing seasonal collections in line with the customer’s requirements.
VI Sigma designers try to keep sampling to a minimum by presenting new ideas in CADs. The team are also currently training in CLO|3D with a view to further reducing the sampling load for the future.
VI Sigma has close partnerships with several factories in and around the Lahore area. The factories range in size and speciality, which means we are able to offer customers the right manufacturing site for their needs. Many of our factory partners are fully vertical with in house knitting / weaving, cutting stitching and washing.
Vi Sigma has its own compliance team working closely with customers to ensure that the required factory certification is in place. Customers are welcome to send their own nominated inspectors to visit the factories at any stage.
Factories are fully compliant and can provide WRAP, SA8000, ISO9002, BSCI, Oekoteks, Sedex, CTPAT and GOTS Certifications.
In addition, VI Sigma also has a factory of its own – Green Clothing.
VI Sigma has a large team of quality control staff based in our Lahore office. Each customer will be allocated its own QC team and they will be present in the factory throughout the production process.
We use the internationally recognised AQL 2.5 to check all our production. In some cases, an additional level of quality checks are implemented by bringing in a 3rd party auditor prior to shipment for added peace of mind.
VI Sigma’s customers enjoy full support throughout the design, development and production process.
Sales and Design staff in the local offices are on hand to present new trends and samples, negotiate prices and confirm orders.
Once orders are received, customers are allocated a dedicated team in the Lahore office. They will liaise directly on the fitting and approvals process, provide a weekly critical path, as well as ensuring all testing requirements are met.
VI Sigma has over 150 staff worldwide, the Head Office is located in Dubai, the Production Office is in Lahore and the Sales & Design teams located in London, Barcelona, Gdansk and Melbourne.
