The Fashion Industry is going through some difficult times – and – focusing on what impacts the business of Fashion has never been more critical to success. As much as we all love the glamorous side of Fashion – when all the glamour is stripped away – you still have a business to run – and business has to run profitably.
This series of Fashion White Papers is not about promoting Infor products – but more to demonstrate how Infor understands the business you run.
Last month we gave you:
Freak’n Fashionomics – The New Economics of Fashion.
The world keeps changing, the economy keeps changing, and business models keep evolving - what's your next move? China isn't the low-cost fashion supplier it once was. This means new challenges, new opportunities and plenty of tough decisions to be made. Read this first in a series of White Papers – authored by Bob McKee, Infor Industry Strategy Director and find out if it's time to build a better sourcing strategy for the future.
This second in the series is:
Evolving Sources, Emerging Markets China & India.
The continuing stagnation of US and European import markets has posed many challenges for fashion industry executives. Western supply chain executives who have sourced from South China for their whole careers are trying out new low-cost destinations—and so are China and India. Many Western apparel brand owners and retailers plan to expand internationally, especially into the two largest consumer markets in Asia—China and India. You know what motivates you, but do you know what motivates them? Read this second in a series of White Papers – authored by Bob McKee, Infor Industry Strategy Director to evaluate if you will be competing with these Asian giants or will you participate in their rising fortunes?
Stay tuned for these future White Papers:
