Business of Fashion

A great article from the BoF website right here

Seems like business training is all they are lacking.

This brings about the question whereby if Singapore is actually ready to produce great fashion talent.

Pessimism aside, infrastructure's lacking.

You could actually swatch at Mood Designer Fabrics. You cannot do the same here.

You have streets dedicated to getting trims, fabric and supplies there. You don't have that here.

You have people who can draft patterns, and small production runs down there. That's not available here. These are all available in Japan, Korea, the UK, etc

To all of you starting trade shows here hoping to get international attention from big stores, you guys need to actually walk through the streets of Singapore and plan for infrastructure to accommodate.

Or maybe we should all just embrace Dsquared.
