Leading global fashion authority news source, The Business of Fashion has teamed up for the first time with McKinsey & Company to release an in-depth report on the global outlook for the fashion industry in 2017.
The State of Fashion Report 2017 includes 50 pages of rigorous in-depth research and an analysis of the global fashion industry of all sectors, focusing on the themes, issues, and opportunities impacting the sector and its performance.
A review of the year 2016 is also included, and doesn’t sugar coat the difficulties many apparel companies faced.
“2016 has been one of the hardest years the fashion industry has ever experienced. Across all market segments, product categories, and geographies, the industry has been shocked by tremors in the global macroeconomic and geopolitical sphere, large- scale shifts in consumer behaviour, and intensifying business pressures to produce more for less—less time, less money, and less effort. “ – BoF-McKinsey Global Fashion Survey, September 2016
