The Learning Curve

The Learning Curve

Get ready for the launch of The Learning Curve, from Fashion SVP’s Sourcing Academy: intensive sourcing and buying workshops

At Fashion SVP, we’re committed to providing and sharing knowledge via our Sourcing Briefings at the show to help busy fashion people in their work. Following feedback from show visitors, many have asked for more in-depth information around the topics we cover at the show, we’re launching a series of in-depth sessions for sourcing and buying professionals. So we’re delighted to announce the inaugural series of “The Learning Curve”: 2-day, intensive and interactive training workshops being launched soon!

What are these workshops about, and who are they for – are they for me?

The programme will deal in-depth with knowledge-sharing on key issues in sourcing and buying in a changing landscape, so this will apply to both large retail brands and standalone or boutique brands. Those in Sourcing, Buying, Production, Technical, Design and Merchandising, who are dealing with fast-changing trends; shorter buying cycles; data-driven demand; new and innovative fabrics; and the changing demands on the sourcing and buying professional, will greatly benefit from these vital sessions.

The workshops will be fully interactive for maximum learning potential. Our expert trainers, with vast experience in the fashion industry, will provide up and coming buyers, managers and entrepreneurs with in-depth and practical knowledge on a variety of topics including:

Product development Lifecycle

Becoming a better buying and sourcing professional

Communication and setting the standards

Meeting sourcing challenges

Factory and supplier evaluation

Negotiating and relationship skills

Developing long-lasting, trusting and mutually beneficial supplier relationships
