ASBCI Garment Costing technical seminar, Eastwood Hall, 3rd July 2019

‘Garment Costing – how technology can support the complexities of costing in today’s apparel supply chain’

Buyers, merchandisers, designers and clothing technologists will appreciate an in-depth analysis of the complex cost factors that impact today’s global supply chains, from fibre to fashion.  The garment manufacturing mix of labour, materials, overheads costs and logistics is often challenging to appreciate, so industry experts have collaborated on the recently published ASBCI technical booklet on Garment Costing. 

The seminar, sponsored by DeSL, will bring to life key and essential aspects of the booklet, so enabling people across all disciplines to have a greater practical understanding of the different inputs related to Costing.  We believe this will result in having a more influential role when involved in the sourcing, pricing, and margin negotiations of their product.  Speakers include:

  • Dave Richards (Keynote Presentation), Director & Co-Founder - DeSL who will speak about 'Systematic control of garment costs'
  • John McClure, Head of Sourcing - Far East - Marks & Spencer will cover 'Sourcing Strategy'
  • David Bell, Managing Director - Assyst Bullmer UK will cover 'Material costs - fabric utilisation and cutting room efficiency'
  • Louis Van Kirk, Senior Work Study Engineer & Performance Manager - David Nieper will talk about 'Labour costs - cheap needle or efficient methods?'
  • Joe Shudall, Sales Director Freight Forwarding and Caroline Ellis, Business & Client Development Director - Advanced Supply Chain will cover 'Garment logistics and importing'
