Apparel Magazine Names 2011 Top Innovators

Apparel Magazine, the leading media brand for the apparel industry for more than 52 years, has announced its “2011 Top Innovators.”
 
Top Innovators are chosen annually by Apparel’s editors from nominations submitted by a host of interested parties within the apparel and apparel retail market. Eligible firms include apparel manufacturers, brands and retailers who have taken an innovative approach in their business — whether that be a new product, an improvement in operations or an innovative adaption of technology. 
 
“The parameters are intentionally broad since innovation can permeate so many aspects of a business,” says Apparel’s editor in chief, Jordan Speer. “An Innovator might be a company that is serving consumers more effectively, or being aggressive in implementing technology to improve the bottom line, or adopting sustainable business practices that benefit their environment, community, customers and employees.
 
“As has been typical in the past, we had a very worthy pool of nominated firms and we’re proud to share the positive aspects of so many outstanding companies in our industry.”   
 
Apparel’s 2011 Top Innovators are Abercrombie & Fitch, Aramark Uniform Services, Barco Uniforms, Bob’s Stores, Burberry Group PLC, Carhartt, Chasing Fireflies, Chico’s, Columbia Sportswear, De Soto Triathlon Company, FLY London (Kyaia Group), Gabrielle Alexandra, Gap Inc., Gilt Groupe, Grandoe, Horace Small, Joseph Abboud, Lafayette 148, Madura Fashion & Lifestyle, Maidenform, Marc Aurel and Massif Mountain Gear.
 
Also: Perfection Uniforms, Perry Ellis, Prep Sportswear, Red Wing Shoe Company, Richard Leeds, SA VA, Saks Incorporated, Silver Jeans Co., a subsidiary of Western Glove Works, SPANX, Superior Uniform Group, Teamwork Apparel, The Men’s Wearhouse, Under Armour, UnitedStyles, Unitex Direct, Westcomb and Work 'N Gear.
 
Each 2011 Innovator is featured in Apparel’s May issue, accessible here.

Sponsors of the Innovators include Gerber Technology, Qliktech, Setlog, Sky IT and TradeCard.

5/1/2014
Online sales and marketing vehicles are one of the most important channels fashion has for engaging with customers, but optimizing the value of your electronic interactions can be a complex undertaking. Front-end websites must be user-friendly and smart, but just as critical is tight integration to the back office systems used to produce, manage, and control the products you sell. If you cannot create an online platform that delivers across all fronts, you’re missing critical opportunities to engage with customers, increase sales, and extend your market reach across global time zones. Read this White Paper – authored by Bob McKee, Infor Industry Strategy Director, where he will share insights into the eCommerce market and just how Fashion companies can deliver on a 24/7 sales economy.
