Fashion Shakeup: How will 'see now, buy now' disrupt the fashion industry? What does it mean for your day job?
See now, buy now has the potential to shakeup the industry as we know it. The new changes to the Fashion Week calendars impact the core foundation of the way many companies work from creative inspiration to product development, sourcing and selling. Fashion, retail, outdoor and footwear are all extremely complex, each product having wildly varying lead times and necessitating large teams to get to market. All design, development, production, and selling activities revolve around a standard timeframe.
What will the disruption in the fashion calendar mean for brands, retailers and manufacturers everywhere? How will you be impacted? Find out how PLM supports brands and retailers to keep pace with changing lead times.
