THE NEW FUNDAMENTALS OF MANUFACTURING

Business Of Fashion

"Agility has never been more critical to success in the fashion industry. BoF breaks down how brands big and small are streamlining their supply chains."



THE 2018 DIGITAL GAME CHANGERS

Drapers

"Digital change and technological evolution have led much of the change in fashion retail in recent years, and 2018 will be no exception. Drapers explores the most important digital trends in fashion."



AMAZON PATENT BRINGS 'BLENDED REALITY' MIRROR INTO VIEW

Retail Dive

"Amazon has earned a patent for a technology scheme described as "blended reality systems and methods," which could potentially be used to create a virtual reality-enabled mirror that would allow customers to try on different virtual outfits in their own homes, according to GeekWire, which first reported on the publication of the patent"



SPEED-TO-MARKET: HOW LUXURY BRANDS ARE PICKING UP THE PACE OF PRODUCTION CYCLES

Digiday

"Labels like Gucci, Ralph Lauren, Coach, Helmut Lang, Burberry and Rag & Bone — all brands that could once call the shots around trends and fashion cycles — are adopting new strategies focused on increased flexibility and faster-paced production windows, in order to adapt to increasing competition and an in-control customer."

 

DIGITISING THE SALES ASSOCIATE

Business Of Fashion

"Department stores and boutiques are using new digital technologies and training to amplify one of the things that still differentiates them from online competitors: their seasoned in-store sales associates."



WHAT COLETTE MEANT TO THE CREATIVE YOUTH OF PARIS

Fashionista

"For those who grew up with the Rue Saint Honoré staple in their backyard, it was much more than a store."

 

AUSTRALIAN LUXURY RETAIL BOOM FUELLED BY CHINESE SHOPPERS AND MICRO-INFLUENCERS

South China Morning Post

"Chinese students and tourists and Chinese Australian residents are responsible for up to two-thirds of luxury retail sales in Sydney and Melbourne and fashion brands are increasing their retail presence and grooming Chinese influencers"



CHARLES JEFFREY AND THE DESIGNERS TRANSFORMING FASHION FOR A POST-GENDER WORLD

The Guardian

"The young Scot is leading a generation of creatives who are playing with ideas of how men and women should look. Will they spark a social revolution?"



CHINA’S ONLINE GIANTS GET PHYSICAL

Business Of Fashion

"The integration of China’s online and offline retail space has been accelerating fast in recent months and December was a particularly intense one. A number of announcements were made by the country’s e-commerce giants demonstrating just how aggressive the battle has become to launch physical stores, experiential spaces and pop-up locations in a bid to close the loop around omnichannel strategies."



COMMENT: EMERGING BRANDS TAKE SPOTLIGHT AT SUBDUED LFWM

Drapers

"The 11th edition of London Fashion Week Men’s (LFWM) drew to a calm and chilly end on Monday. While the overall atmosphere at the UK’s dedicated menswear showcase was much quieter this season, the lack of big, headlining brands focused attention on London’s creative rising stars."



WHAT THIS DESIGNER WANTS YOU TO KNOW ABOUT INDIAN CRAFTSWOMEN

Refinery29

""India is not known for fashion," Sachdeva began, nervously. "It's known for its textiles, its handicraft, and tradition — but not fashion." The New Delhi-based designer aims to explore transitional wardrobe staples of modest fashion, using innovative techniques to revamp and explore the ways that traditional and indigenous textiles of her home country can be manipulated and shared with the world."



TARGET, ZARA, AND OTHERS HAVE AGREED TO MAP THEIR CHINESE FACTORIES’ POLLUTION IN REAL TIME

Quartz

"A new joint project by the Institute of Public & Environmental Affairs (IPE)—a leading environmental NGO in China—and the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) is making it easier for clothing labels, and eventually even shoppers, to keep an eye on that pollution. It’s a map showing the official supplier factories for brands that have signed onto the effort, and the pollution each is producing, practically in real-time."
