Retail Business News & Topics | +200 compelling articles 

The Fashion Retailer blog is about news, insights, opinion essays and conversations with leading fashion technology entrepreneurs and executives. It focuses on thoughts about the latest industry and customer trends, on describing different business models (e.g. fast fashion, luxury), key industry players (retailers and etailers) and how companies are facing the digital era.

Why a blog about fashion retail?

Fashion and retail seems to be two different worlds. We usually differentiate Science from Art, operations from design. Two opposite profiles or skills, like ying and yang. The idea of the blog is understanding both sides of the coin.

Retail is moving from flagship to brandship and different store concepts. Fashion retail is not dead, it´s just adapting to the digital era where omnichannel will create new ecosystems.


Who I am

Alfonso Segura, born & raised in Barcelona, Millennial, sociologist, entrepreneur, Fashion & Retail expert and IESE Executive MBA.

I´m an outdoor sports enthusiast, streetart explorer, sharks fan, and passionate about the business of fashion and retail.

I had the opportunity to work for luxury (Ermenegildo Zegna) and mass-market (Mango) fashion retailers. I was an entrepreneur and partner at Normandie (baby clothing retailer) where I was in charge of Marketing, e-Commerce and Operations. Normandie opened stores in El Corte Inglés and Harrods (London).

During that period, I have lived in two of the coolest cities in the world, where culture, fashion and art are everywhere. Those are Istanbul (Turkey) and Cape Town (South Africa). Meanwhile, I´ve been involved in projects for electronics, foods and fashion retailers in Europe, Latin America and Africa.

I recently joined Infor (Tech company) CloudSuite Fashion to contribute in driving digital transformation and Omnichannel in the Fashion Retail Industry.
