Happy Monday, Inside Retail readers!
Uniqlo opened in India and the country's Minister of Textiles was present for the opening. One of the reasons I love retail is because it generally isn't directly involved in politics. When retail does intersect with politics, it's unfortunately usually in the form of a trade war or cultural appropriation. However, the ambassadorial nature of India's Minister of Textiles gave me pause for some of the more unifying aspects of apparel's global marketplace.
