The business of fashion changed from a product-centric approach to a customer experience, centric approach. Companies are investing in configurable ecosystems to be agile and flexible enough to compete with niche players and pure players in the digital era. The sequential and lineal made-to-stock model is broken. Forecasting and planning your sales 12 months in advance is only a way to increase leverage or increase financial debt. On the contrary, platforms’ ecosystems are fostering new agile collaborations instead of leading to higher structural operating costs.

New strategy and operating models focus on speed, agility and flexibility. In such volatile markets and risky seasonal business, technology is the enabler of this new model. As an example, the change of CEO at Nike (Mark Parker steps down in early 2020. John Donahoe, a tech executive will replace him) goes beyond a simple transition: it’s a metaphor of how the retail industry is evolving.
