What is driving growth in the Global Luxury Apparel Market?

The global luxury apparel market has seen exceptional recovery since 2021, after the inevitable sales decline in 2020 due to the pandemic. This growth has largely been due to strong demand in the key market of APAC, with the lifting of restrictions leading consumers to spend more on luxury goods for events such as holidays and social occasions. This growth is only expected to continue, and GlobalData’s free report Global Luxury Apparel Market Trends, Size and Forecasts out to 2025, can assist companies in understanding the drivers behind this growth, as well as potential inhibitors and key trends affecting the market. Understanding these crucial elements will be essential for luxury brands and retailers to stay ahead of their competitors. This report provides comprehensive analysis of:
  • Luxury apparel market size at total, regional, and category level – with forecasts out to 2025
  • Market drivers and inhibitors
  • Retailer and brand market shares, 2019-2021

James most recently served as CEO at Pier 1 Imports, after serving as president of Kmart for several years. He has also held global retail leadership roles, including chief customer officer of global brands for Tesco in the UK, and as executive vice president and chief merchant for Tesco China.

In December 2019, following the consolidation of its Dollar Tree and Family Dollar Store Support Centers, the company merged its merchandising and store operations functions under ‘Enterprise’ leaders to enhance the alignment of communication, strategies, and initiatives for both of its business segments.

To support Dollar Tree’s future growth plans and to ensure depth of capabilities, expertise, and leadership across its broader merchandising, sourcing, and supply chain divisions, the company has added this key executive role.

James will be responsible for merchandising, global sourcing, marketing, inventory management, and logistics, and will report to Michael Witynski, president and chief executive officer.

“Alasdair is a proven retail leader with many years of global consumer goods experience, in the US, China, and the United Kingdom,” says Witynski. “This new position strengthens our executive team in key areas of the business, as we continue to grow as a unified company with two strong brands. We will continue to maintain our customer-centric focus while developing initiatives to improve productivity and efficiencies.”
