The Perfect Places for Hunting Stylish Outfits in Yogyakarta

by Hindarko Luh Setyawanto

The birth of Factory Outlet is an interesting story. This started from the monetary crisis that occurred in the 1990s. Because at that time the economy was slowing down, the trade also became sluggish. Many clothes targeted for the export market were not sold successfully. This situation led to the idea of establishing a Factory Outlet. Thus Factory Outlet is a clothing business with the concept of selling the remaining stock of clothes from the factory with low prices. At that time, FO was the brilliant solution to the economic crisis because it also provided employment.

As time is passing by, Factory Outlet is growing as well. Currently there are even some Factory Outlets which have their own clothing factory. They produce clothes and simultaneously distribute them. In terms of production, most Factory Outlets is oriented to the emerging trends in the rich countries such as South Korea, Japan, Europe and America. They try to adapt this trend by adjusting fabric material against weather conditions in Indonesia.

Every Factory Outlet strives to have its own image so that imitation can be avoided among them. In addition to image, most of the time the difference between one Factory Outlet with another lays on the model of clothing that it sells. Therefore some Factory Outlets make a clothing model with certain characteristics. The model is made in various sizes and sold for a certain period, for example two weeks. Even so this period is flexible. If there is increase in market demand, the model can continue to be produced and sold.

So practically Factory Outlet can be classified into two major groups. The first is Factory Outlets which exclusively produce or sell clothing with limited design and production. The second is Factory Outlets which produce or sell clothing according to market trends.
