The biggest area of change, according to fashion retailers, is in customer experience. Of those surveyed, 28% name this as the part of the business that has been the most strongly affected by the departure from the traditional fashion cycle.

This is not the only area needing attention, however. Retailers identify buying (20%) and supply chain and fulfilment (16%) as other areas that need focus.
