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.

Based in Torquay, Australia, Rip Curl is one of the largest surfing companies in the world and designs, manufactures and retails high-tech surfing sportswear and a broad spectrum of accompanying products, including wetsuits, boardshorts, watches, apparel and travel gear for both men and women.

For more than 15 years, Rip Curl’s legacy supply chain software solution created a siloed environment that required each global office to have its own database and unique ways of working across products.

The company has now selected NGC’s cloud-based Andromeda PLM solution to accelerate product design and sourcing for its fashion and performance collections. The single collaborative platform will connect its global network and integrate ERP data to increase visibility and efficiency.

“It is important we continue to push the limits and innovate in both the products we offer consumers as well as in how we do business,” says Milan Thompson, group general manager of Technical Products, Rip Curl. “We saw a great opportunity to work more efficiently and collaboratively with modern, advanced systems to help streamline our global processes.”

“NGC understands the challenges we have as a global business and the opportunities available to us with a modern system in place,” adds Heather Evans, project manager, Rip Curl. “We are excited to operate in a highly collaborative environment on a single platform to help bring together both our internal and external partners across the global supply chain.”

As well as ensuring all departments across the globe are on the same page in real time, the Andromeda platform will help Rip Curl to automate many of its processes to provide complete visibility and control from product concept to customer delivery.
