Moss Bros. Group , Technical Manager
Jessica Harris worked in menswear for 15 years before joining Moss Bros. to head up its technical department two years ago. There, she oversees the life cycle of all product from managing compliance at factories to the standard of the finished pieces that hit stores.
By moving the business from a buying model that works through agencies to nurturing direct relationships with factories, Jessica has helped the 169-year-old brand find its feet in today’s challenging landscape of responsible manufacturing. The move has allowed Moss Bros. to rebuild its specifications library and reclaim control over how its products are made. It also means Jessica can work closely with factories and suppliers to make sure processes meet industry-set standards, that working conditions are ethical and that the brand continues to make strides towards a greener future.
