Our dresses such as knee length dresses, full sleeves kurti etc. These ladies dresses can be custom designed as per the requirements of our esteemed clients across the globe. In post war Britain there was a desperate need, among some of the less well paid public service areas unable to match wages with booming industries, for semi-skilled staff to fill the jobs that many rejected.
Undaunted the young Abdul Kader did what go-getters faced with problems do best. He outworked the natives in his desire to succeed, first of all as a bus conductor with responsibility for ticket sales and accounting, driver liaison and passenger safety on the door-less buses of the time.
He continued to work double shifts while Mrs Maryam Kader put in similar hours as a dressmaker in their corner drapery shop at Great Horton Road Bradford.
For sixteen years the man and wife team served the Asian community in their Bradford heartland selling Lancashire cottons to Yorkshire Asians. As the British textile industry entered its sad decline the Kaders automatically turned to their homeland in South East Asia for supplies of fabrics and special embroidered silks for the shop trading as Bombay Stores. In the early 's, son Saleem saw the potential of wholesaling to similar outlets serving the Asian communities throughout the north.
The family then bought a 15, square feet disused garage, which now houses their superstore i. Bradford's population includes more than 70, people of Asian descent, so the store is always busy. Customers tend to have low incomes and Kader has an extensive choice in the lower price range. Using his sons as his managers, he follows the Asian tradition of the family business. The secret is the extensive choice of fabrics - and the space to store them.
Kader has 40 container warehouses groaning with silks from India, China and Japan. There is also a profitable offshoot of the business for the English trade, with outlets at John Lewis and other department stores. Saleem Kader, Abdul's son, is in charge of the wholesale department. Perfect Occasions outperforms its competitors because "we are not run by accountants", he says.
Saleem Kader is 38 and wanted to go into the RAF, but "family pressure" pushed him into the business. He is not bitter. He seems to have adopted old-fashioned attitudes towards law and order, believing the police were too soft on last year's rioters in Bradford. We were full of panic. We didn't know what was going to happen. The next day we felt as if someone had died. The Kaders have jumped from nothing to the Asian middle class and worry about Asian image and behaviour.
You don't see violence like that in China, Japan or Korea. People have to be kept in control. Two weeks after the riots, we took calls from Asia, asking if it was OK to come and buy. This is an argument which mirrors the earlier English experience of Jewish traders, who came to the north to sell textiles. The common ethos is: Abdul Kader has done just that.
