BGMEA urged Ralph Lauren to strengthen their partnership with their Bangladeshi suppliers and increase sourcing from Bangladesh.
BGMEA Acting President Sayed Nazrul Islam and Vice President Miran Ali hosted a dinner for Marielle Boström, Head of Regional Sourcing, and South Asia; Aditi Bharadwaj, Regional Sourcing Lead, South Asia, Ralph Lauren, and Bashir UN Nabi of Ralph Lauren Dhaka office.
They discussed issues pertaining to the RMG industry of Bangladesh, including the sector’s priorities in the market and product diversification, especially high-end non-cotton products.
Ralph Lauren, one of the world’s largest fashion brands, has reopened their sourcing operations in Bangladesh on 2017.
Ralph Lauren Corporation is an American publicly traded fashion company that was founded in 1967 by American fashion designer Ralph Lauren.
Ralph Lauren gave focus on its global online platform, observing coronavirus epidemics and potential resurgence challenges as an opportunity to deepen and expand its digital capabilities.
The company is in the process of evaluating their long-term operating structure in line with their evolving strategic priorities, focusing on six key areas: team organizational structures; enterprise-wide processes; distribution center and corporate office real estate footprint; door presence across owned direct-to-consumer and wholesale partners; discretionary expenses, and their brand portfolio.
