Have a look to Andrea Selvi insight to Fashion.
Did you know that the first Italian fashion show was organised in Palazzo Pitti 1952?
Now Tuscany, as a region, is the beating heart of the luxury leather industry. A lot of Italian international brands produce their leather goods item close to Florence.
The market environment will remain complex and inconsistent for the next few years, which means that the fashion industry will need proactive profiles able to quickly react to the social economic changes.
In the near future, buyers and merchandisers will play a key role, since they will be responsible for driving the business from guiding the design team, to fulfil the rapid demand on the final customers online and in stores.
Brands should lean more on data-driven product development, adjusting the inventory mix accordingly, to ensure that the assortment resonate with the consumer lifestyle.
The fashion industry is always moving fast. After the pandemic period, we noticed all the complicated aspects of the fashion system, from sourcing to retail management, from sustainability to stock management. Which means that now and even more in the future, buyers and merchandisers must mix instinct with hard data analysis to build product selections that customers wants to buy.
