Abstract [en]

This paper focuses on the problematization of customization processes in the fashion industry. We investigate how companies may face and orchestrate customization processes that are based on the use of specific Information and Technology (IT) tools such as online sales configurators. Most studies on customization in fashion have considered the roles of consumers and their impact on the development of customization strategies. The co-development of customized goods – the choices concerning which IT system should be implemented to allow customers to design their products – has been studied extensively. We offer new insights into the extent to which customization represents an issue to be managed in business relationships, particularly among different business actors involved in a supplier network. By considering the case of a shoe manufacturer we seek to answer to the following research questions: (1) How can a fashion company implement a customized solution via the Internet? (2) Which specific trade-offs affect the management of customization and IT when online customization must be linked to offline production? The paper concludes with implications and suggestions for further research.
