New Era of of Global Sourcing
Date/Time/Location: Thursday, April 23, 2015 | 6:30pm - 8:30pm | Halt Auditorium, 2nd floor | Feldman Center
As the fashion business evolves into a more global and mobile business, so too are the skill sets required to keep the more than one trillion dollar industry moving forwards with innovation and newness. The Future of Fashion, presented by Fashion Institute of Technology's Jay and Patty Baker School of Business and Technology, Department of International Trade and Marketing, Library, and Sourcing Journal is an evening dedicated to shining a spotlight on the vast opportunities that extend beyond the runway available to the next generation of fashion leaders. From mass retailers to luxury brands, our panel of distinguished speakers will discuss how each sector of the fashion market sources its products. It all starts with crafting a strategic sourcing plan, selecting the right factories and logistical partners with the supply chain, and anticipating challenges faced by companies and retailers in global sourcing today.
