Challenges of Fashion & Luxury Manufacturing

To succeed amid the dramatically shifting tides of the global market, few industries require companies to stay as nimble and on their toes as the Fashion & Luxury manufacturing business. First, there is the fast-moving nature of fashion, which requires companies to jump on trends right away. To add to these challenges, apparel consumers not only want to see a level of freshness in their products, but also in the entire shopping experience. Finally, the Fashion & Luxury sector is rapidly expanding and hosts some of the world’s most rapidly growing companies.
