UK's Industry Forum and [TC]² are joining together to present a new module in their continuing series investigating best practices using the Fast Fashion model as an example on June 14th at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City.

In an uncertain consumer environment, speed to market and flexibility are critical. Fast Fashion companies in Europe have demonstrated that their model delivers higher return on capital employed with higher inventory turns and better same store sales growth figures. The workshop will cover the following elements:

• Why the fast fashion model is such an important development.
• The principles behind fast fashion and how the model is delivering superior financial performance.
• How applying the principles of lean improves the supply chain, delivering better products more cost effectively.
• How Fast Fashion improves the product development process to deliver on-time on-trend products.
• Why delivering fast fashion is a more sustainable solution which can generate a very positive outcome for the CSR report.

The presentations will include Fast Fashion examples of tools and techniques which have been successfully applied in Europe. [TC]² will show how Fast Fashion meets the sustainability agenda and how advances in digital technology will make processes even faster.

This workshop is a must in understanding the management processes and behavior required to achieve speed and low cost - two key criteria in a recessionary market.

Presenters: Ken Watson, Managing Director, Industry Forum; Dr. Michael Fralix, President and CEO, [TC]² ; and Robert McKee, Strategy Director – Fashion, Lawson
