As part of its evolving services to brands and retailers, Fashion SVP is launching a special information centre for buyers at its January edition (January 29th & 30th, Olympia, London). Upon arrival, sourcing buyers and their teams will be invited to utilise the new “Sourcing Hub”, where highly experienced sourcing professionals will be able to answer sourcing questions and queries, from the simple to complex product development or manufacturing issues.
