Made To Measure and Made To Order - The New Fashion Formula - From Sheep to Suit

The global men's fashion supply chain is driven by large brands which dictate styles, materials and prices. Traditional contract manufacturing for these brands operates under price-based competition. In order to break out of this dead end, Richmart, the most modern made-to-measure men's suits factory in Eastern Europe, decided to reconfigure its entire supply chain. The managers undertook a detailed Thinking Process analysis of the supply chain, based on the principles of the Theory of Constraints and decided to move towards a win-win partnership between all parties involved from the wool through fabric, machinery and equipment to sewing factories and fashion consultants to the consumer. The Sales Director of Men's Fashion Group Dean Manev and Martina Martini (Art Director) made a presentation about Made To Measure and Made To Order services during the International TOCICO conference in Berlin, Germany on 19 July.

Men's Style project offers real measures against unemployment in fashion industry

Youth unemployment is at critical levels - in the EU 23.3 percent (5.5 million) of those under the age of 25 are jobless, according to EU figures.

The European Union is preparing a 6-billion-euro ($8-billion) package to address the problem. The money will be used to help young people find jobs or vocational training. There are several ways the money can be spent to fight youth unemployment. But what I believe will be the best option is to support entrepreneurship among the unemployed young people.
