FASHION INNOVATION AND SUSTAINABLE FABRICS

Fashion innovation is a mindset, and it’s a creative challenge that’s both exciting and necessary for all future brands to succeed. Brands need to challenge their team to create ideas and intellectual property. To be curious about how technology is affecting manufacturing.

The innovation mindset is placed firmly at the heart of Joanne Yulan Jong’s five-step methodology in her book the Fashion Switch.

Joanne is a whirlwind of creative vision backed up with hard-nosed fashion business experience so I knew when I found her it was the perfect match for my new brand. Since early 2013, I have worked very closely with her and her team on every aspect of developing my childrenswear brand Petit Tribe, and they have delivered beautifully, all creative, including all the bespoke prints, design and art direction. Over these years I’ve been as impressed by her professionalism and dedication as I have with the high-level introductions that were pivotal to getting my business launched. Highly recommended.
