The first of these workshops, entitled 'Fast Fashion, Critical Paths & Effective Management of Fast Supply Chains', will be held on June 24th at the BCIA Boardroom, 5 Portland Place, London.

- Industry Forum's new Fast Fashion workshop sponsored by Fast React will provide you with valuable insight into how to achieve speed from concept to delivery to the consumer.

Learn what processes enable the Fast Fashion cycle from design to point of sale to be achieved in 4-6 weeks and the company culture required to support the processes.

Fast Fashion examples of successful companies like Zara in Spain and leading retailers in the UK are presented by Ken Watson and supported by Fast React, who will be demonstrating how the latest technology can quickly and effectively be used to control the Fast Fashion process.

Using case studies and team activities the workshop will show how retailers and manufacturers can follow Zara and other fast fashion brands and improve speed to market, increase responsiveness, and overall supply chain performance.

In order for companies like Zara, with a small batch size flow model, to perform successfully their supply chains need to be flexible and highly effective. Learn some key steps and changes in philosophy which can make an impact on your business, quickly.
