Issue 06: The New World Order
The Business of Fashion is proud to release its latest print edition The New World Order. In this special industry briefing, BoF examines the "broken" fashion system and meets the disruptors trying to fix it.
Cover star Demna Gvasalia of Vetements and Balenciaga sits for an exclusive interview with BoF founder Imran Amed. The Paris-based designer is turning the traditional fashion business model on its head for his streetwear brand. And he is not the only one. We also talk to Paul Smith about streamlining his manifold collections and merging his men's and womenswear design teams. And editor at large Tim Blanks chairs a Roundtable, with leading industry figures including Erdem Moralioglu and Susanna Lau, about the flaws of the current system and how best to fix it. Elsewhere in the issue, we look at the markets, technologies and events which will have a global impact this year presenting unique opportunities for brands, as well as the key growth levers, from China's travelling consumers to e-commerce.
