During the webinar, which is sponsored by FastFit360, Valerie Arnold, director of business operations, Patagonia, will share how the outdoor brand is leveraging “social business” for enhanced factory collaboration and improved efficiency though reduced prototyping and shorter development timelines. Social business refers to how apparel brands are sharing and communicating about fashion workflow in a highly visual, social media-type environment.
The event will provide actionable tips for apparel brands and retailers who want to speed cycle time. Information will be relevant for designers, technical designers, product developers, and sourcing and QA/QC professionals.
In addition to Arnold, the webinar will feature insights from Roxy Starr, executive vice president, design and development, FastFit360, provider of the technology used by Patagonia. Starr will describe FastFit360’s e-sample technology and demonstrate how robust, real-time analytics can be used to rate vendor performance and to secure a clearer picture of corporate outcomes against core metrics, such as cycle time per sample, by vendor and style.
FastFit360’s core technology delivers a revolutionary and refreshingly simple solution to fashion businesses requiring supply chain speed and visibility.
