Merchandizing is a key activity in any organization. It includes conceptualizing a product/range, designing, sourcing and ensuring that the final product reaches the customer on time.

This activity is all the more difficult in the apparel context due to the seasonal and fashion centric nature of this industry. New designs/colors have to be constantly created and converted into products that can be delivered to the customers in time.
