Blog: Leonie BarrieBob’s blog

Leonie Barrie | 22 February 2007

As a fellow blogger and an apparel industry expert with more than 35 years’ experience, it’s a real pleasure to direct you to ‘Bob’s Blog,’ which can be accessed through on just-style by clicking this link. Bob McKee is the industry strategy director for fashion at software supplier Lawson, and will be using his blog to talk about anything and everything, from his daily drive into work to why apparel firms should think lean (as his two first two blogs do).

Having spent time with Bob at various trade shows, I can confirm his comment “if you ask me for the time – I will tell you how to build a watch...” It should make for fascinating reading.
