It's official. French’s fashion governing body, for decades colloquially known as the Chambre Syndicale has changed its name. From Thursday on, it will be known as Fédération de la Haute Couture et de la Mode (FHCM).
H&M had plenty to talk about Thursday as it reported higher H1 sales, some markets that were good and others that were challenging, plus e-sales powering ahead and strength in its expanding other brands.
JD Sports Fashion said trading and profits are on track for the first half, even though calendar effects make it hard at the moment to compare current trading with 2016. The firm continues to expand internationally.
