What Australian fashion staple is locally owned, operated and approaching its 50 year milestone? Ragtrader has been a trusted source of information for the Australian fashion industry since the 1970s, evolving into daily digital content, a bimonthly magazine and annual events and conferences.
These channels deliver insights on the entire fashion retail ecosystem, from managing profitable front-end retail and eCommerce businesses to optimising back-end processes such as manufacturing and inventory.
Ragtrader has a number of long-serving members with a deep understanding of Australia’s fashion landscape, including founder and regular contributor Fraser McEwing. I’ve been with the title for over a decade and started my journey by interning at consumer fashion publications.
The majority of our audience consists of key decision-makers including C-Suite management and brand owners, making up 93% of the readership. Ragtrader works to provide these leaders with regular news, in-depth analysis and networking opportunities to make empowered business decisions.
We have amplified our content to include downloadable reports into core categories such as fashion eCommerce, marketing and retail operations. We have also created a number of virtual programs to keep the industry connected during lockdown. These can be accessed via our free newsletter and subscription to this is available here.
Having recently welcomed a full house to our Ragtrader Live conference in Sydney, we are looking forward to hosting a Melbourne iteration later this year. We are also working on a number of content extensions for the second half, including a venture into the podcast space.
Ragtrader is thrilled to offer AFC Members a VIP rate to attend our conferences as well as 40% off subscriptions. We believe these channels will provide clothing, footwear and accessories businesses the information and networking opportunities to succeed.
