NOTE: There is no grace period in case of GDB
To familiarize the students with the power of brand towards fascinating its target market, and acquaint them with the latest trends of garment industry of Pakistan.
After attempting the GDB students will be able to:
The trend of wearing branded clothes is radically increasing among general public specifically in metropolitan cities of Pakistan such as Lahore, Karachi, and Islamabad etc. We daily come across a large number of billboards displaying designers’ latest collections that are advertised by the best models, actors, and actresses. Ready to wear branded clothes are now likely acquired by customers and these brands are using inimitable promotional procedures to attract their respective target market. In continuation to this, a new trend of producing branded clothes for kids is observed, famous brands such as; Mini Minors, Colors, Maria B, Outfitters, Leisure Club, and Cross Roads are quite renowned in this regard. Ideally, parents and adults are seen as more brand conscious whereas kids usually don’t have any brand sense, having said this people are getting more brand conscious and want their kids to wear branded clothes as well. This is the reason why companies are catering adults and kids for producing unique, fashionable, and stylish cloth.
Point of discussion:
As a customer how would you perceive above scenario, and do you support this branding trend shift from adults to kids? Share your opinion with proper arguments.

ksi ny GDB bnai hai kia
promoting children to wear branded clothes is waste of money or promotes creativity in children??
brand conscious people doesn't care much about money
yah kasi uni hai is sa acha to banda aiou sa kar la both boring quiz or gbd hai
bro if it's boring for you it doesn't mean this VU is boring, mashaALLAH It makes study interesting and quiz and gdbs promote creativity in students but sadly students are trying to get full solution they should use their own skills and ability and should only get idea not solution, if one will do this then I'm sure VU will make him fully polished ready for practical life well educated person..
peoples focus only those brand in which they have great knowledge because they dont like to waste their money so they want their child purchase branded product
modern era is competition era so company focus on their brand quality because they want to increase their shareholder and owner profit
