Book Description

Fashion Supply Chain Management provides a comprehensive guide to the entire supply chain management process as it relates to the fashion industry: how fashion supply chains work from raw material to finished product, and how generic supply chain concepts are applied in the fashion context. It focuses on contemporary strategic issues that the sector is currently confronted with, some of its current challenges and the innovative ways the sector has developed to respond to these challenges.

Concepts such as sustainability, fast fashion, raw materials, logistics and reverse logistics, costing, lean and agile manufacturing and other supply chain strategies are expertly covered in this work, with each area underpinned by the new technologies required to support supply chains in the fashion industry. Each chapter is complemented by an in-depth case study from a relevant global organization so that readers can gain real-world insight, alongside pedagogy to aid student comprehension, including quizzes, end-of-chapter activities, and role play scenarios.

This key work is an essential textbook for students studying Fashion Supply Chain, Operations and Logistics as part of Fashion Management undergraduate and postgraduate degrees. Fully comprehensive on theory yet applied to practice, it will equip students with the tools and understanding for a future career in the fashion industry.
