There’s little 2020 hasn’t thrown at fashion supply chains. A pandemic. A shutdown. A supply crisis. A demand crisis. A social uprising. And the sole certainty in the midst of so much upheaval is this: It is past time for supply chains to be entirely overhauled.
It’s time for fashion’s R/Evolution.
The future predicted a decade ago as far off—one where resources are in jeopardy, waste is choking the environment and climate change is rearing its head—is here, but despite the foresight, fashion hasn’t kept pace and is still ill suited to address the current needs. Now, a slow crawl toward change will prove a swift ticket to irrelevance. The fashion industry is in a dire situation that only sweeping cultural change, targeted innovation and swift action can address.
The 2020 Virtual Sourcing Summit, R/Evolution: Overhauling Fashion’s Outmoded Supply Chain, will unite thought leaders from around the world to reveal how to rebuild everything from sustainability, seasonality and social compliance, to product development, demand planning and purpose. Join us as we outline the opportunities that will come from taking bold steps toward rewriting fashion’s roadmap.
