The apparel industry by Richard M Jones( Book )

15 editions published between 2001 and 2015 in English and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although the market is worth many billions of pounds the industry is highly competitive, fast moving and complex and demands in-depth knowledge, flair and flexibility. In such a dynamic, high speed market success can turn to failure very quickly. This textbook describes the structure of the industry in the UK and globally, and explains the current problems and strategic responses to global shifts in production.

The new edition has been updated throughout to include the latest available data, and takes account of the acceleration of the decline of manufacturing in the UK since 2002, the rapid expansion of production in China, and the final demise of the system of quota control
