DAY Birger et Mikkelsen Customer Story
To keep track you have to see the big picture
DAY Birger et Mikkelsen is the brainchild of Keld Mikkelsen, whose founding vision was to capture a chic silhouette and combine it with details inspired by his world travels. Since the brand’s launch in 1997, the higher purpose has consistently been to create versatile fashion that aims to showcase the contemporary aesthetic of the everyday.
The brand has grown to become a flagship of Danish fashion. When they first implemented Delogue PLM in 2013, the same brand was managing two sub-labels, DAY ET and 2nd DAY, now separate. DAY Birger et Mikkelsen needed Delogue to keep track of the different collections and gain a clear overview of the production process.
The need for efficient processes across all labels
Collection planning and lack of efficiency have been the two biggest struggles for DAY Birger et Mikkelsen. They realized that precise and easy communication with both suppliers and internal teams needed to be enhanced to improve time to market. Former Brand Director Therese Niko Bush explains the overall improvement she found in the company when implementing Delogue PLM.
DAY Birger et Mikkelsen has chosen Delogue PLM as the best platform to support their processes, which has resulted in improved workflows, traceability, and better time to market.
Gaining better overviews and improved time to market
DAY Birger et Mikkelsen was interested in a tool to accommodate the challenges they were facing to keep growing and improve their collection development and traceability throughout the supply chain. Bush, who was juggling different collections for different labels at the time, shares the downsides of growing so fast.
Our continuous growth on our labels DAY, 2nd DAY, and with the introduction of our accessories concept DAY ET, demands an even bigger focus on our collection development process. With a complete visualization of our supply chain, Delogue PLM was an easy choice, as the buyers and creatives have an overview right from the start.
