Fashion trends tend to come and go quickly. Fashion is a living thing that is constantly adapting to what consumers want. For us as zipper manufacturers, this presents a challenge. Our customers often have requirements that need to be met before the current trend in fashion moves on.
To analyze the best way to respond to emerging fashion trends it can be useful to take a look at how the fashion industry as a whole tracks and reacts to those trends. Fashion doesn’t happen in a vacuum. The many aspects of fashion are all interconnected. So we try to look at what the rest of the fashion industry is doing in order to keep up with the emerging needs of the industry. This lets us tailor our business to meet those needs as fast as possible.
Data on Emerging Trends
Keeping up with changing fashion trends all starts with data analytic. Social media provides some interesting data on the flow of consumer interest in fashion. Media sites often include influencers who post images and commentary on their current fashion interests and these posts tend to drive the interests of the audience for those influencers. Comments on those posts also provide some insights into concerns that the public may have about fashion products and their thoughts and opinions on the fashions they are presented with.
Fast Manufacturing on Demand
Fashions trends change quickly. Some may last for an extended period and some may be over with in a few weeks or months. This means that it is often necessary to focus on small-batch manufacturing rather than mass production for some of the more turbulent fashions. When providing components such as zippers for fashion creations this means that the supply chain needs to be fast and responsive to keep up with changing demand.
High Consumer Visibility
Coming up with a highly desirable fashion product is useless if nobody knows it exists. Visibility is of absolute importance in the fashion industry. This means getting products to where they will be seen by as many people as possible and will be displayed in as positive a light as can be achieved. The quality of product components such as zippers can often make or break a fashion product when it is being reviewed by media or showcased by influencers, which means that quality control is a major priority for zipper manufacturers.
Ensuring that fashion designers and manufacturers have the components that they need to meet rapidly changing fashion trends is an important concern for zipper manufacturers. The fashion industry can turn on a dime and suppliers need to keep up with those fast turns. Robust and responsive supply chains and a high level of quality control are essential for ensuring that changing consumer fashion needs don’t outpace the companies supplying those needs.
