Fashion Week

Tailored for Success

A designer’s Fashion Week show may only last 17 minutes – but the most important minutes in a designer's calendar require months of planning and the support of dozens. DHL is the Official Logistics Partner to Fashion Weeks events around the world, including the prestigious Fashion Weeks in Paris, Milan, London, New York and Tokyo. The pressure on designers to have everything ready on time for these shows can be immense, often that result in last minute shipments containing garments and equipment arriving only hours before they appear on the catwalk in front of the world’s media. That is why DHL’s portfolio of solutions extends to RFID tracking services, customs clearance support and extra distribution routes to handle increased volume and those critical last minute deliveries.

But the challenge for a designer or retailer doesn’t stop there. The fashion industry is both competitive and demanding, with a 21st century consumer that knows no limits, expecting to shop for products at any time of the day or night, in any location round the world, and then to have them delivered to their door the next day.

Over the years, DHL has developed specific logistics solutions to customers ranging from large retail groups and fashion houses with complex international distribution requirements to small fashion boutiques requiring a one-off service. The solutions have been developed to meet the growing demands of the industry, from international supply chain solutions, warehousing, distribution center management, e-commerce fulfillment services and home delivery, through to further added value services such as tailor-made packaging, stitching inspections, quality controls and even washing and ironing services.
