We’re on the tail end of the Spring 2015 Ready to Wear fashion weeks with New York, London and Milan behind us and Paris wrapping up this week. For the upcoming season, we’re seeing a lot of florals and bright colors (as to be expected for spring collections), some 70s throwbacks and a tribute to Barbie’s iconic style by Moschino.
While the couture shows are beautiful, imaginative and innovative, the ready to wear shows are creative, yet slightly more practical. These are the pieces you and I will be able to pick up at Bergdorf’s, Neiman Marcus and Saks, if the paycheck allows. The shows give us a taste of what’s to come next spring—the trends, the colors, the cuts. What if the taste is a sour one?
Media and public perception of a line that takes months to design and manufacture can make or break a collection in a matter of days. Solutions, like NGC’s fashion PLM, SCM and ERP, connect designers and factories at all points of the design and production process, providing immediate and transparent instructions to change a hemline or button based on buyers’ orders and feedback – an invaluable tool in the fast-paced world of fashion. These solutions bring factories and design houses real-time updates of all stages of the design and production process, reducing turn-around time, maintaining the brand's high quality standards, and ensuring close collaboration between its design team and global supply chain.
NGC’s solutions prevent fashion houses and factories from losing countless hours and dollars by providing them with transparency and access to minute details throughout production process. In a world where buttons, seams and immediate feedback can make all the difference in a successful style season or not, designers and manufacturers can strut their stuff if they invest in a stable PLM, SCM and ERP solution.
