Top stories this week on just-style include a look at how to build a balanced sourcing strategy, the publication by Primark of its global supplier list, Trump goes to Davos while NAFTA grinds on, and Lululemon Athletica’s CEO, Laurent Potdevin, exits over misconduct.

Supply chain trust is key to successful sourcing

There’s no “golden ticket” when it comes to building a balanced sourcing strategy, especially when faced with the need for faster speed-to-market and customer demands for ‘buy now/wear now’, according to Angela Gaskell, head of sourcing and compliance manager at UK-based plus-size fashion retailer N Brown Group. But understanding your customer, identifying the right strategy for your company, building trust and working in partnership with your suppliers are all steps in the right direction.

Primark publishes global sourcing map

Primark has published its global supplier list just weeks after the UK value retailer was amongst a number of fashion brands criticised for not publicly disclosing the factories that produce their clothes.

Lululemon CEO Potdevin exits over misconduct
