Fashion & Luxury Industry Outlook

The strategic challenges of the supply chains and the ‘Made in Italy’ supply chains

The issue of the Supply Chain in the Luxury & Fashion sector has a particularly strategic importance in the Italian fashion system.


Fashion, Luxury and Made in Italy Products:
the true value is the workforce of excellence

It is necessary to go back to promoting the ability to make “excellent products” and reverse the negative trend in terms of training and availability of people that truly know how to “work with their hands”.


Agile + Responsive Supply Chain: the reactiveness challenge

Markets go global but differentiation grows; demand patterns evolve more and more rapidly. Fashion & Luxury Supply Chains are called for a leap in quality and the keywords are responsiveness and flexibility.


For Supply Chain Managers, Success Means Becoming Storytellers

Storytelling the brand is crucial; but also storytelling the Supply Chain is fundamental so that customers and potential investors fully appreciate the value inside fashion products.

The future of fashion depends on the ability to address and tackle the challenges on the industrial front. The European House – Ambrosetti and the managers of leading fashion companies working together to map out the path to evolution.



The Ermenegildo Zegna group has acquired a 60% share of Bonotto S.p.A.: more than an acquisition, it represents a strategic vision the result of an intuition by The European House – Ambrosetti partner Flavio Sciuccati.

Also Italian tanneries that supply quality materials are experiencing positive results, but less so than their customers. This is partly a question of size.
