Disruption. Transformation. Growth.

Molly Kremidas, Nilit, Global Marketing Manager, Nilit America

Sub-title: How consumer trends are disrupting the marketplace, transforming the way we shop and presenting growth opportunities to savvy apparel suppliers and brands.

The apparel industry is undergoing the most rapid transformation since the advent of ready-to-wear. Smart-phone toting consumers, empowered by new shopping, information and price-checking apps, have become more knowledgeable and demanding than ever. Many are eschewing shopping for more experiential activities, choosing instead to rent, share and swap clothes.

Despite cutthroat promotional tactics, traditional retailers can’t seem to stop the decline in brick and mortar traffic, resulting in the biggest rash of bankruptcies, store closures and mall repurposing since the Great Recession. At the same time, increased competition from global retailers expanding into new markets and the continued explosion of e-commerce players indicate that the oversupply of retail space and inventory will not abate anytime soon.

Traditional fashion media have lost power to Facebook, Twitter, Youtube and bloggers, regular folks with an eye for style who’ve captured the imagination of their peers.

Not surprisingly, suppliers and brands are struggling to make sense of it all. Join this panel of industry experts for a lively discussion to learn more about the major consumer shifts causing today’s transformation and what suppliers and brands can do to find growth opportunities in the “new normal”.

In our post-trend world, there are no hard and fast color rules.

While commerciality is still critical, taking a more unique approach to color that can be tailored to your clients is what will help you stand out from the mainstream.
