For our annual management briefing on apparel industry issues to watch in the year ahead, just-style asked leading executives for their feedback on the challenges and opportunities likely to emerge in 2014. Their insight provides a fascinating overview of the state of the sector today.

Among the biggest challenges facing the apparel industry in 2014, responsible sourcing and the need for greater visibility across the supply chain were singled out.

We also asked what is likely to keep apparel industry execs awake at night in 2014 – and is the year ahead set to be better than 2013? While confident in their outlook, managing risks and protecting brands are set to be top priorities.

We suggest what will define the retailer winners from the losers in 2014 - and what key strengths and strategies are helping companies to take leading positions.

We turn our thoughts to sourcing, predicting how the landscape is likely to shift in 2014, and what strategies can help apparel firms and their suppliers to stay ahead. While China is still seen leading the pack, we look at the growing interest in onshoring or reshoring for the US and EU.

Finally, from the rise of the billion dollar transnational factory giants to the bursting of the Bangladesh bubble and the decline of the retail store, we offer our take on the key garment industry issues to watch in 2014.
