Street Style, Arrival for AcneStreet Style, Day 5, Autum Winter 2017, Paris Fashion Week, France - 04 Mar 2017

There’s no denying fashion and retail are tough businesses these days — and fiercely competitive.

With that spirit in mind, WWD looked at the third-quarter financial reports of about 60 companies and compared overall sales or revenue growth to their performance during the same period last year and then stacked them up against one another, regardless of size. Companies that do not make quarterly sales figures available have been excluded.

The result is an illuminating look at the 10 companies that are managing to grow sales in a changing retail environment and the 10 that aren’t. Here are WWD’s Winners and Losers for the second quarter of 2017:
