This obviously leads to the point that industry peers have to tighten up their creative process to serve the given time frame.
Just tune in on Jeremy Lindbergs video interview. The NYC showroom owner explains the changes the fashion industry has gone through lately and how it is going to further evolve. Especially since high-end fashion is not untouchable anymore. Each style invented in any part of the world can be seen instantly. Fashion is not a matter of location anymore. Contemporary fashion is accessible all over the globe whether you are living in a major city or somewhere out in the boonies.
But how does it affect fashion designers? Fast fashion retailers literally force designers to be very quick in designing and inventing clothes.
The workflow in designing clothes in a seasonal cycle becomes diluted. Designers have to produce more styles and looks than they has been used to.

In the future, a fashion designer will only be successful when he can manage the balancing act of influencing people and staying tangible at the same time.
Customers want to be taken seriously. They want to be sure that their opinion is going to be considered. Although it will definitely not be the same amounts designers were used to cashing in on in the past. However, only the relationship to a loyal but interested customer will assure future success. Fortunately, there are too many fashion lovers amongst us that will appreciate high-end fashion for good.
