Do you have any burning questions you’d like to ask a renowned global garment industry expert? For free.

Maybe there’s a topic you’d like to learn more about, something that you’ve seen mentioned here on the pages of just-style, or maybe a strategic issue that’s affecting your own business. It might be to do with a specific country, a specific product, or a wider sourcing and supply chain concern. Perhaps you’ve received a request from your customers and you don’t know which way to turn.

Hopefully we can help. We’ve teamed up with consultant David Birnbaum who’s agreed to share his advice and opinions on any queries we receive. And the answers will be published here on just-style.

To get the ball rolling, we’re kicking off with David’s feedback on operating a small and medium size factory in an industry dominated by multi-national giants. Click on the following link to read more: COMMENT: SME survival in a world of giants

If you’d like David to consider your own question, please click here to email me and I’ll pass the message on.
