The collection development process is a critical activity for fashion, that must continuously renew its products, and is subject to increasingly strict time, cost, and quality goals. A central theme is the complexity of managing the collection development process, due to the number of operations that must be carried out and the variety of actors involved.

For all of these reasons, fashion collection development requires extraordinary coordination and integration abilities.This book is the product of the work and efforts of various authors, from both the academic and professional worlds.
