Book chapter

Footwear production is costly and time consuming. Historically, shoes would have been made in the country where they were destined to be sold to the end consumer, where footwear “brands” were signs of good quality and durability rather than style statements. However, in recent times the inevitable and unstoppable development of offshore production, speed of change in fashion, and consumer requirements have meant that the location of footwear production has changed dramatically.

Merchandise Planning

Book chapter

Merchandise planners have to gauge daily, weekly, and seasonal demand for what is probably one of the most difficult consumer products to predict. This difficulty arises from a number of factors, of which the need to successfully monitor and control stock is perhaps the most significant. If a fashion business has too little stock, it will potentially lose sales to competitors; on the other hand, if it has too much stock, it will have invested buying money that is effectively “dead.”

This may be referred to as the final brief, proposal, statement of intent, or concept outline. Regardless of its name, the activity and process is the same. Begin by asking yourself what will showcase your skills and creativity in the best way. Some students approach this stage of their final collection with vague or unrealistic ideas, being driven to making the ultimate personal catwalk statement. Without reflection, research, and a great deal of hard work, this will not work. Creativity in fash

We are surrounded by design. As I sit here at my computer, I can consider the design of its casing and the user interface of the software. I can also consider the design of my clothes. The keyboard, my teacup, the phone, the graphics on a book cover, my backpack, and the window frame are all designed; even my daughter's rock collection on the windowsill has been designed. Each rock has been chosen on the beach as a candidate for the collection and then intentionally placed on the windowsill as de

Response time is the time it takes from beginning the line development process through to shipment of the styles in the line to retailers. Continued pressure by retailers to increase the number of product offerings and reduce response time has shifted corporate attention to line development. Leading apparel companies and many vertical retailers (retailers that develop and manufacture their own private label product lines) have focused on the line development process in their quest to shorten resp
