137 – Sketch Pad to Shopping Bag – The Future of Fashion Fulfilment

The second in our series of live panel discussions in association with Kornit Digital, manufacturers of advanced digital printing solutions.

‘Sketchpad to Shopping Bag: The Future of Fashion Production and Fulfilment’ continues the important debate around the future of the UK textile industry.

I’m joined by panellists from education, design, manufacturing and retail, as well as the Chief Marketing Officer of Kornit Digital.

We discuss:

  • Why more companies are looking to reshore their production to create a faster time to market
  • How supply chains are changing and why that’s important to the UK fashion industry
  • How COVID_19 has affected the industry
  • Why big retailers need to change their buying model and re-look at their pricing and margins
  • The importance of partnerships between manufacturers and retailers / brands
  • Why designers and manufacturers must leverage technology to create on-demand manufacturing as a service
  • How e-commerce is replacing brick and mortar stores, giving consumers more choice and the opportunity for more bespoke products
