Sourcing professionals including Angelica Sergi, vice president of supply chain and production at Temperley London, will share their insights with attendees at London-based apparel sourcing event Fashion SVP this summer.

Established in 2012, Fashion SVP is designed for brands and retailers who buy direct from factories, and provides buyers with the opportunity to meet apparel manufacturers from 20 countries.

Taking place on 26-27 June at London Olympia, this year's speakers include Estelle Williams, head of collection and development at Roland Mouret; Richard Benson, director of Guide London; and Liz Leffman, director at Clothesource.

Together with other industry leaders, they will provide show visitors with valuable solutions to current sourcing issues. The open sessions will focus on issues around the changing nature of brands, retail and sourcing, how to reduce lead times, what the future of retail looks likes, the end of long range planning, data driven buying and more.

"Our Sourcing Briefings always attract a huge amount interest and are always packed on the days of the show. These sessions, free to show visitors as part of the Fashion SVP experience, provide practical advice and solutions to the real challenges faced by hyper-busy executives every day in real, pressured situations," said event director Buzz Carter. "We're always grateful that leading and inspirational industry figures agree to come to share their knowledge and vast experience."  

Fashion SVP features over 120 global suppliers, carefully chosen for their production expertise, and covers all aspects of apparel buying and production.
