The landscape of retail is continually evolving, driven by the proliferation of e-commerce and digital channels that have transformed consumer behavior. Retailers no longer solely interact with consumers at physical locations; instead, they must navigate multiple touchpoints where consumers research, evaluate, and purchase products across various platforms.

To succeed in this dynamic environment, brands need robust supply chain management solutions that can fulfill product demand through any channel while minimizing the complexities and costs associated with returns processing. Inventory optimization is also crucial to ensuring efficient movement of products and reducing markdowns.

Out Of Season Habits Of The Fashion Industry

Posted by Harriet Schneider on Mar 19, 2024 8:32:56 PM

In the ever-evolving fashion industry landscape, it's imperative to reassess traditional practices and embrace innovative approaches to foster sustainability. Rather than perpetually chasing the trend treadmill and inundating the market with new products, fashion companies must pivot towards establishing a dynamic ecosystem of services that actively engage consumers in sustainable practices.

The conventional fashion design and production paradigm has led to alarming levels of waste and environmental degradation. McKinsey & Company estimates that a staggering 20% to 30% of clothing produced is discarded each year, amounting to approximately 92 million tons of waste. This unsustainable cycle perpetuates environmental harm and poses significant economic challenges for the industry.

To combat this pressing issue, a paradigm shift is necessary. Instead of fixating solely on product creation, the focus must expand to encompass a multifaceted approach centered on service-oriented solutions. By leveraging emerging technologies like 3D printing and artificial intelligence (AI), fashion companies can embrace made-to-order services, tailoring production to meet demand precisely. This reduces overproduction and fosters individual customization, adding value for consumers while minimizing excess inventory.

This is a summary of a blog written by Helene Behrenfeldt, Fashion Industry & Solution Strategy Director, Infor

Helene works as a strategist at Infor, focusing on the fashion industry. She has over 20 years of experience talking to clients, giving advice, and positioning solutions to help support their businesses. Areas of expertise include multi-channel global operations, sustainability, product development, inventory management, and overall fashion brand focus. She is responsible for investigating where the market is going to make sure Infor is well-positioned to meet the needs of the fashion industry today as well as tomorrow.
