Nominate an Apparel Top Innovator

Apparel Magazine will devote its May 2013 issue to recognizing innovative apparel retailers, brands and manufacturers — and the strategic business partners that have helped them to achieve success.

We invite you to nominate an innovative company in our industry — a retailer, brand or manufacturer that has demonstrated innovation at any point along the supply chain. Examples of innovation range from apparel companies that are introducing mobile POS to their retail stores to those that have streamlined their product development processes with PLM and sourcing systems to those that are collaborating more closely with their factory suppliers to eliminate waste, improve speed-to-market and produce in a smart and sustainable fashion. Some other areas to consider include: collections featuring new and innovative performance fabrics; the use of RFID for inventory management and loss prevention; improved layouts and better technology for warehouse optimization; and much more.

The innovations in our industry are virtually limitless, and we hope you’ll share one with us.

To nominate your company or another, please click here to access the nomination form.

To find out who last year’s winners were, click here.

Companies may make more than one nomination, but a separate form must be submitted for each entry. Award winners will be selected by Apparel’s editorial team.

The deadline for submitting your nomination is Tuesday, Feb. 26.

Contact Apparel editor in chief Jordan Speer at 803-771-7500, ext. 3017 or jspeer@apparelmag.com.
