‘Locally made’ has many benefits – especially to independent clothing brands. Fast turnarounds and small unit quantities ensure you can be nimble and offer new and exciting limited-edition product throughout the seasons. This way of producing also minimises dead stock and wastage – a more sustainable method for local labels.
New labels should consider developing product that can be used in various iterations throughout the seasons. Creating a silhouette to carry various prints or plains in different fabrics is a good way of extending the product development investment whilst keeping the offering fresh.
