NEW YORK — Russia, China and India may be all the buzz in fashion, but there is also significant opportunity in emerging markets like South Korea, South America and the Middle East. Two years after launching his consultancy, Robert Burke has found that these regions can not be underestimated.
"There is growth in these emerging markets, which is so strong that it often rivals the American businesses," said Burke, who serves as the president and chief executive officer of Robert Burke Associates.
