Leading entrepreneur, Sam Wood was named 2021 NSW Young Entrepreneur for Fashion and Design.

This award capped a significant year of growth for Azura Fashion Group.

The young business leader is excited about the year ahead, believing that after a challenging 2021, “there will be significant opportunities available for designers in 2022,” leading entrepreneur Sam Wood says.

Mr Wood said the Australian economy is bouncing back from the difficulties caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Global consultancy group Bain & Company forecasts that online sales will indeed become the single biggest channel for personal luxury goods by 2025, making up 30% of the global market” Mr Wood.

“In a post-pandemic world, having an eCommerce store is a necessity, not a luxury, and retailers must look to synchronise their digital platforms to offer shoppers a multi-channel experience that is second to none. Once you have established an omnichannel retail strategy, the next step is to ensure accurate visibility across all of your different channels”
