2 thoughts on “Global Apparel Market and Trade—The Modern Cotton Story Podcast”

  1. I actually love listening to this podcast. Its so interesting to hear about agriculture and relating it to the fashion industry because as a fashion student we don’t learn much about farmers and growing cotton that supply the global fashion industry. I thought it was interesting to learn about the annual benchmark report. It is based on the industry outlook, sourcing strategy, and how trade agreements affect sourcing strategies. Brands these days focus on many factors when sourcing such as speed to market and environmental and social standards. This is ever changing from the outdated sourcing based on lowest wage. Forecasting fashion data trends is very difficult especially with Covid. You talked about how cotton, even though it seems like synthetics are preferred over cotton, cotton is still growing with natural and sustainable needs and it will not go anywhere. I really hope this is true and cotton will be used more and more for recycling and circular clothing.
