Today, we’re going to look at the history of Zara, its parent company Inditex, and the fashion industry in general, to see how it became possible to create such a high churn rate in the fashion industry. An average American will throw away 77 pounds of clothing every year. And that’s true across the majority of the western world. That is two suitcases of clothes, just dumped. Zara’s first store opened in 1975, in a city called A Coruna in northern Spain. Owners Amancio Ortega and Rosalia Mera had wanted to name it after a favorite Greek film called Zorba the Greek, but a bar on their street had already beat them to the punch, so they settled for Zara, since they had already had the letters made for the sign. Inditex was set up in 1985 as holding company for Zara and the manufacturing plants. They went on to set up and take-over many other high-street brands that follow Zara’s format; such as Pull and Bear, Bershka and Stradivarius. They now have over 6000 stores globally. Zara’s early business model was to create similar copies to high end lines but at an affordable price. As they expanded through Spain, Ortega pushed the idea of instant fashion, where Zara could react incredibly quickly to new trends so they could put new lines on the shelves in a fraction of the normal time. -----------------Support the channel: Support this channel: https://www.patreon.com/alexberman SUBSCRIBE for more videos like this: http://youtube.com/alxberman?sub_confirmation=1 Check out our Digital Agency Marketing Podcast: https://itunes.apple.com/hr/podcast/digital-agency-marketing-1/id1200614219?mt=2&ls=1 Need lead generation or marketing support for your agency?

Although companies faced rising cotton prices and an increase in overall wages, the industry managed growth of 4% in value sales globally. Although consumers are spending on apparel, it's at a more moderate pace than other products, explains Kondej.

(9 Mar 2017) LEADIN: An Indonesian fashion startup is calling itself the "Uber for tailors". Depok-based Kostoom is a desktop application that connects home tailors and seamstresses with fashion designers and businesses. STORYLINE: This might only look like a small workshop near Jakarta, but it could be the beginning of a fashion revolution. For years there's been growing demand for high-quality local brands, but the industry has struggled to find manpower to actually make the clothes. Now, startup Kostoom is trying to fix that. Launched in February last year, Kostoom is a desktop application that connects home tailors and seamstresses with fashion designers and businesses in just a few clicks. Clients upload their unique designs and place their order. Then, the startup helps them finalise their design, choose the right fabric and make samples before finding qualified people to actually sew the clothes. Kostoom founder, Putri Yuliastutik, got the idea after watching her own mother struggle to make ends meet when working as a seamstress from home. Even though her mother had good sewing skills, she had trouble finding work and was getting paid very little for her services. Putri and her three fellow co-founders decided to develop an application to empower people like her mother. "I worked with my friends to develop a web application to help home tailors receive direct orders from customers," explains Putri. "They don't have to work at big garment factories and they can receive just as many orders working from home." The startup accepts both individual and bulk orders on its website. People can request a single-piece order, input their measurements and receive the finished item within ten days. Kostoom is currently working with 40 qualified seamstresses, but aims to employ hundreds more in the near future. In less than a year, the startup claims to have already begun changing the lives of the people it aimed to help. Putri claims many home seamstresses have gone from making 75 US Dollars a month to around four times that since joining them. "Our main goal is to make home tailors throughout Indonesia become their own bosses," she says. "They can set up their own small factory at home and improve their welfare." Currently the startup has around 400 registered users, with almost three-quarters of them belonging to small and medium fashion businesses. It has also collaborated with a well-known Indonesian fashion designer. Yunita Hafrida specialises in plus size wear and uses the Kostoom service. Yunita has been in the business since 2012 and says finding good seamstresses is one of her biggest challenges. "We can work with the startup when we want to sew a single cloth or order a large quantity of clothes," explains Yunita. "Kostoom has made it very easy for me because it can pick up the fabric and deliver the final product when finished. The startup also does its measurements directly on site." Indonesia's fashion industry has seen healthy growth in recent years with many local brands becoming household names in the country of around 250 million people. According to the Indonesian Ministry of Industry, the local fashion industry grew 7 percent in 2015 and contributed as the second highest in the creative economy sector to the country's GDP. The export value of Indonesia's fashion products amounted to about 12 billion US Dollars in 2015 with its main markets in the US, Europe and Japan. It's a contribution welcomed by the Secretary General of Indonesian Fashion Chamber, Lisa Fitria. "When designers want to make clothes in large quantities, in the thousands, they have to put the order through a garment factory," she explains.

(13 Feb 2017) LEAD IN: London has always been one of the world's leading lights in the fashion industry - but has Brexit dulled some of its shine? At the Pure London fashion retail show - and with London Fashion Week on the horizon - brand owners and designers give their views on doing business in Brexit Britain. STORY-LINE: On the catwalk at Pure London it's business as usual. The models strut their stuff to the music and packed crowds squeeze in for a glimpse of the latest trends. But behind the flash and the glamour - is London still an attractive venue for fashion brands? With Britain voting to leave the EU, and uncertainty hanging over all sectors of industry, the UK's fashion talent is preparing to weather the storm. Maggie Song studied fashion in Beijing but came to the UK 13 years ago to make her name in the industry she loves. In this time she has founded three labels, her most successful brand is Jolie Moi which can be found in some of the UK's largest department stores (John Lewis, Debenhams, House of Fraser). She considers her business to be small to medium sized. Her clothes are designed in the UK but the materials and production happen in China. When the result of the Brexit vote was announced she was on a business trip in Beijing and recalls her horror at hearing the news. "I was shocked (when she heard the Brexit result). I couldn't think anything and also I couldn't speak, so, I was watching the exchange rate on the Internet, I can see the drop, the pound, this dramatic drop to the dollar and immediately I realised how tough it will be for small business," she says. Song is expecting a tough 2017 as the low value of the pound starts to bite. She expects she will have to lower her margins to absorb the impact of Brexit. But not everybody is suffering from the falling pound, according to Pure London's show director Julie Driscoll. "So the exchange rate means for international brands it's really easy for them to enter the UK market, so more than ever before we're seeing international companies, international fashion collections wanting to come to the UK to explore opportunities and indeed this means this is our largest Pure London ever," she says. One of the foreign fashion brands visiting Pure London for the first time is French jewellery maker Pas Si Sages Bijoux (Not So Wise) from Lyon. Their funky, Bohemian-inspired jewellery is low/to mid priced and is all designed and produced in France. They are now looking to expand into the British market. Chloe Chenu, the director of Pas Si Sages Bijoux, demonstrates the latest product - a back necklace. She believes Brexit has not changed anything in the fashion world and thinks the UK is still a great place to do business... perhaps thanks to the eccentric English style. "London is always the place for fashion, the most important in the world, even after Brexit, that doesn't change anything. We always come to sell products, English people are always eccentric and they want French products," she says. It's the same story for Turkish designer Ece Kavran, whose range called Urun features minimalist, classic pieces. She says London is still top of her list for places to do business because of its pace and willingness to try new brands. She says in France and Italy the market is much slower and more traditional. "But England is an expandable market, it's forever open to the new idea, to the new brand, and I think that's what makes it, England, very compelling for us," she says. But fashion is more than just sales and spreadsheets, it's about creating brands - and there is no bigger brand than a country itself. So has brand Britain been tarnished by its decision to leave the EU?

We believe in fashion – an industry which values people, the environment, creativity and profits in equal measure, and it’s everyone’s responsibility to ensure that this happens. Our mission is to bring everyone together to make that happen. On 24th April each year, Fashion Revolution will bring everyone in the fashion value chain together and help to raise awareness of the true cost of fashion, show the world that change is possible, and celebrate all those involved in creating a more sustainable future. As a global movement uniting around an annual campaign, over the next 5 years we believe we will build considerable momentum and achieve incredible impact together. We recognise that, in many cases, Fashion Revolution will bring together organisations and people that, outside of Fashion Revolution, remain competitors. She is the founder and director of Fashion Revolution. Fashion Revolutions aims to raise awareness of the true cost of fashion, show the world that change is possible, and celebrate all those involved in creating a more sustainable future. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx

'코리안 쿨' 제3한류 뜬다... K스트리트 패션이 교과서 Yesterday, we took a look at the challenges Korea's fashion industry face. Today,... let's zoom in on how those in the industries are finding new ways to build on the unique qualities of K-fashion and overcome adversities. Here's Hwang Ji-hye with the last of our two part special. This district in southern Seoul bustling with young Koreans is now one of the city's most popular tourist attractions. A major reason for that... is the street fashion shops lining the sidewalks of Garosu-gil. "Korean clothes is cheaper than Japan and more fashionable." "It provide us with a reasonable price. With that reason, I think it's good for us to go shopping around ." "And this so-called street fashion of Korea... that incorporates Seoul's overall pop culture driven by Korean celebrities and entertainment content is what many point to as the hotbed of Korean fashion." Jung Ku-ho, director of the ongoing Seoul Fashion Week, says... Korean fashion has carved out a niche for itself. "Foreign fashion weeks focus on high-end brands, but Korea's fashion week features clothes with more street and pop culture elements. And that's what foreign buyers and the press are interested in, too." The rising brand value of the capital city of Seoul... is also drawing major fashion houses, which have begun to recognize its rise in the world of Asian fashion. Chanel brought its cruise fashion show to Seoul for the first time last year... and French lifestyle brand Maison Kitsune paid tribute to Korea in its 2015 fall/winter collection. Jung also says... fashion is part of the culture boom driving the larger Korean Wave. "What clothes Seoulites wear and what they eat and the culture of the city in general seem to be garnering interest from around the world these days." Jung, who's a successful designer himself, adds that,... to survive in the already saturated industry,... local designers need to take advantage of Korea's Internet infrastructure. "Focusing only on the local market is no longer working. Designers should think of the global market as a city and find ways to promote their brands and communicate with their customers. These days, they can do it using social media." He adds... this is also a way for them to cut costs in the current economic downturn. Hwang Ji-hye, Arirang News.

In this video I will be covering ‘How Brexit will Impact the Fashion Industry’. I will be giving the pro’s and cons from the point of view of a fashion designer. BREXIT PROS 1. With the value of the pound set to decrease as it has been, British products are set to be cheaper to international customers which could increase more sales units. 2. There may be some short term benefits, however. In October, Burberry reported a 30 percent rise in its UK sales as tourists flocked to its stores to take advantage of the fall in the British pound, which helped offset falling demand from US department stores. The continuation of that momentum will depend on whether companies operating in the UK maintain their prices, or raise them to compensate for the low pound. 3. As the devalued pound would mean that education over here would be even cheaper than previously for international students. BREXIT CONS: 1. World Trade Organization rules, meaning businesses would be subject to trade tariffs on import and exports. Textile goods, for instance, may face a tariff of 12 percent in duties. 2. With the value of the pound set to decrease as it has been, British products are set to be cheaper to international customers which could affect perception 3. UK fashion businesses and institutions could also lose access to hundreds of millions of euros in EU funding, which could affect the BFC, the Centre for Fashion Enterprise and the University of Arts London. It is not clear whether the British government will step in to replace the lost EU funding. 4. According to the British Fashion Council London Fashion Week is likely to cease to exist after Brexit 5. Due to potential restrictions in freedom of movement 98 thousand freelancers in fashion (of 16000) could find it difficult abroad. However CIF (Creative Industries Federation) are proposing to introduce a creative freelancer short term visa to act as a resolution to this problem. (Research sources: Caroline Rush, British Fashion Council, BFC, CFE, Centre for Fashion Enterprise, UAL, University of the Arts London, Fashion Business, Fashion School, Brexit, Fashion Brexit,CIF, Creative Industries Federation) During this video you will hear my thoughts and advice for fashion start ups and fashion businesses.

Namrata Shirodkar speaks about Indian fashion industry. She says, "It was very exciting, I did a lot of work for a lot of fashion people and biggest of biggest designer India I ever saw and I think we did a very exciting work but there is not too much that one can do here because people are very limited and it's like you are restricted in terms of what you wear and what you don't wear and things like that so you can only see like a lot of times what you see on-ramp is not necessarily what you see people wearing so it's a lot for shock value a lot of things that you see on ramp so basically I had fun while I was doing it but now I guess I am into a different profession altogether."

The recent Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5ºC highlights the urgency and scale of action required to keep the planet safe. On the brink of dangerous climate change, immediate action is required for the fashion sector too, to be aligned with the goals of the Paris Climate Change Agreement and move towards net-zero emissions by 2050. UN Climate Change has initiated a broader climate action work program, convening fashion stakeholders to develop a coherent, unified position on climate. The work program aims to connect the diverse stakeholders in the fashion industry, including raw material producers, textile producers, apparel manufacturers and brands, to identify new areas for action and to scale up existing initiatives that connect the value chain.

(22 Apr 2018) LEADIN: A project to find an ecological way to dispose of stinking, rotting fish skins has spawned a new industry in Mexico. Now a range of products are being produced by artisans, choosing fish skin instead of leather. STORYLINE: These tilapia fish are being farmed because they are a popular source of protein. When you're processing fish for food, however, you are left with a lot of fish skins. But here in Ciudad Valles they've used a traditional process to innovate a new product. It's not long before the fish caught here are on their way to a tilapia fish skin tanning project developed by researchers at the Competitive Applied Innovation and Technology Center, known as CIATEC. The project started as a spin-off development, a way to get added value for the fish farming industry in the adjacent state of San Luis Potosi. Lead researcher Yolanda Nieto noticed that after processing to turn the meat into nuggets, the leftover fish skin and flour were becoming a possible infection point. Since Nieto is based in a well known area for industrial shoe making, she and her team set about finding a way to tan fish skin. Nieto says: "The main goal of this project is to harness the waste of the thriving industry of fish farming. First of all, by doing this we take care of the environmental problem of leaving the fish skin to rot, and secondly, we can allow the communities to produce and sell products that can be sold with a higher value." Particularly happy are farmers like Juan Castillo. He says: "Our main priority is to produce more fish meat at a lower price. And beside that, now with the tilapia skin tanning alternative, we can produce things like moneybags, shoes and different articles to sell from a waste." "This is an alternative for an extra income that we can see as an added value over something that we never did before. To be honest it is something very good because it is an extra income that we didn't have," says Castillo. Researchers claim what's left from the tanning process is a soft, flexible and durable product that can be transformed into fashionable items such as shoes, boots, handbags, bags and key chains among others and as a substitute for exotic skins. The tilapia farming industry in Mexico faces a strong competition from imported Chinese products and the opportunity of harnessing the leftovers can't be ignored. "I believe that it can be very good (fish skin), because it is very special and I can see that it can be very colourful to work with. I believe it has a lot of future," says shoe maker Francisco Reyes. There are challenges to overcome. Size wise, the fish skins can't compete with the size of cow and pig hides, so staff are starting off small, using the exotic skins to make handicrafts, or a popular fashion boot in northern Mexico. Local shoe makers are finding the product useful for sandals, but now the research center is developing a way to sew the fish skins together in panels that can be adapted for larger products, such as jackets. Nieto believes there are no bounds to what can be achieved. "Actually, the range of products made out of fish skin can be as wide as your imagination allows. It is true that they are small pieces of skin, but with the proper arrangement we can create panels of the pieces sown together and make great things," she says. At the tanning factory they're hoping designers will come up with a way to make it more popular.

Kenya's fashion industry in the future will all be about fish skin. For many in Kenya's north rift valley of Kitale, fish is a culinary delight. When the most desired parts of the fish are sold off, the rest is wasted. A local foods factory in Kitale is turning the wasted fish skin into leather. Victorian Foods works with roughly 300 fishermen from Lake Turkana in Kenya's north, who provide it with Nile perch. The fish skin is put in a tannery machine after its scales are removed and soaked fo… READ MORE : http://www.africanews.com/2018/12/06/kenya-s-futuristic-fashion-industry-with-fish-skin Africanews on YouTube brings you a daily dose of news, produced and realised in Africa, by and for Africans.
