he Conventional fashion supply chain model is too opaque, fragmented and slow to respond to diversified consumer demands, quickly enough to satisfy the customers. As a results, consumers will look to the nearest competitor to get the personalised products and exceptional customer experience they want.
This inability of the conventional supply chain to meet new expectations puts established fashion companies at risk. The market has become highly competitive and demanding as consumers especially the millennials look for fast fashion at good pricing. This requires companies to quicken the process of all operations in manufacturing products.
