The weekend newspaper round up: December 4 to 5, 2010

A round up of the best fashion business stories from the weekend’s newspapers.

Online giant Shop Direct is shifting production to Europe as costs rocket in the Far East. Chief executive Mark Newton-Jones told The Mail on Sunday that it will triple clothing production in mainland Europe and its periphery next year. The move means 30% of all its production will come from the region, predominately Turkey.

In an interview with The Sunday Times, designer Tom Ford said that his clothes have no sell-by date. “You make your own look and add what you like.” He added: “I wanna make things that are classic. Imagine how great to have invented the Chanel suit or the blazer.”
