In order to transform UNIQLO into a global brand, we are also working to globalize our product development functions. Our product development is based on a global R&D system which links the major fashion cities of Tokyo and New York. We employ talented personnel worldwide to ensure that we are the first to pick up trends in different parts of the world and even to gain the power to create and generate the next upcoming fashion trend.
Freed from any hardset ideas, we have worked to capture new local fashion concepts early and then transmit them around the world. In addition, the basic garments for which UNIQLO is well known are also being modified and improved every day to produce even better core products.
