ASBCI, DeSL to help retailers in accurate garment costing

Jun '19
Fashion retailers and brands will get an opportunity at the ASBCI technical seminar to learn about how to accurately cost garments – and control those costs – in today’s increasingly complex supply chains. The seminar in association with DeSL scheduled for July 3 in UK will help participants understand all the factors affecting the cost of a garment.

Starting with a comprehensive overview of costing basics, the seminar will take delegates through the challenges and opportunities of Far East sourcing and consider everything from sourcing strategy to labour costs, material costs, and importing and logistics.

Dave Richards, director and co-founder of end-to-end solutions provider DeSL, will deliver the keynote presentation on how to achieve systematic control of garment costs. He will be followed by John McClure, head of sourcing – Far East, for M&S, who will explain how sourcing strategies can affect the cost of a garment.

Other speakers confirmed for the seminar include David Bell, managing director of Assyst Bullmer, on how to optimise material costs, and Mike Danby, CEO of Advanced Supply Chain Group, on how to factor in and control logistics costs.

Delegates will also have the opportunity to share their costing questions, engage with the speakers in a Q&A session, and get expert advice.

The seminar is aimed not only at those directly involved in garment costing but also buyers, designers, and technologists who also need to understand the costing process and how it impacts design and production. (RR)
