We help brands, industry partners and investors realize systemic change.

 

BRANDS

A new generation of consumers values transparency and sustainability, but convoluted supply chains make it difficult for brands to deliver on these values. We help brands move toward innovative and closed-loop supply chains that align with consumer demands.

INDUSTRY PARTNERS

We assist [1] policymakers and economic development agencies in identifying opportunities and implementing initiatives and [2] industry organizations and events with the integration of new technologies and approaches.

INVESTORS

We work with private equity and venture capital firms to develop fashion investing strategies.


 
The disruptions ahead are so profound that mass-market apparel players making big moves and capturing the advantages of nearshoring and automation will have a significant first-mover advantage. The business models they build will drive growth and be difficult for others to replicate.
— McKinsey & Company, The State of Fashion 2019
