For our annual briefing on apparel industry issues to watch in the year ahead, just-style has again asked leading executives for their feedback on the challenges and opportunities likely to emerge in 2015. Expect a continuing focus on compliance and factory safety, ongoing challenges in omni-channel and the need for new supply chain solutions - and much more besides.

Our panel of executives included:

  • Tom Nelson, VP global product procurement, VF Corporation
  • Marc Compagnon, executive director of Li & Fung Limited and president of LF Sourcing
  • Roger Lee, CEO at TAL Apparel Limited
  • Paul Forman, group chief executive, Coats Plc
  • Edwin Keh, CEO of the Hong Kong Research Institute of Textiles and Apparel (HKRITA)
  • Sue Butler, director at Kurt Salmon
  • Tim Armstrong, apparel origin and value chain consultant
  • Rick Helfenbein, president of Luen Thai (USA)
  • Matthijs Crietee, secretary general at the International Apparel Federation (IAF)
  • Dr Achim Berg, a partner at McKinsey & Company
  • Mike Flanagan, CEO of apparel industry consultancy Clothesource
  • Julia Hughes, president, United States Fashion Industry Association (USFIA)
  • Magdalena Kondej, head of apparel and footwear at Euromonitor International
  • Rick Horwitch, vice president, Strategy and Solutions Business Development for Bureau Veritas,
  • Julia Hughes, president, United States Fashion Industry Association (USFIA)
  • Josh Green, co-founder and CEO of Panjiva,
  • Judy Blackburn, director at Kurt Salmon
  • Stephen Taylor, senior manager at Kurt Salmon

We asked the panel what they think will be the challenges and opportunities for the year ahead, what keeps them awake at night, the state of retail, and what's happening with sourcing.

Long-time contributor David Birnbaum also homes in on the problems facing those brands who have set their sights on developing markets in China and Russia; and a solution for the new model full-service factories.
