German term or phrase: Kollektionswechsel
In der Modebranche - immer häufigere Kollektionswechsel und eine dynamische Verbrauchernachfrage...
I used "changes in product lines" for "Sortimentswechsel" and now I'm stuck here...

changing its collection
Explanation:
How about changing the noun into a verb construction? Or are you looking for an alternative to the 'Kollektion-' part of the term ?


Blue Knob Antiques and Home Fashions is always changing its collection of antiques and fine antique furniture. They also carry new accessories and gifts.

H&M hat gegen alle bestehenden Regeln der Branche einen 12-maligen Kollektionswechsel pro Jahr eingeführt, während bis zu diesem Zeitpunkt alle der Meinung waren, mehr als 4-mal Mode pro Jahr sei nicht möglich.

Against all rules, H&M decided to change its collection twelve times per year. While all other companies insisted on the assumption that it wouldn’t make sense to change the collection more than four times per year.

Notes to answerer
Asker: The day was wearing on and I thought one word might exist that takes care of the idea and "collection changes" didn't sound right.


Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
agree  xxxeggsacion: yes, it's about stores changing their collections more frequently in response to changing consumer demands - "increasingly frequent collection changeovers" might be another idea, cf http://209.85.229.132/search?q=cache:RWRlU5tYrTQJ:www.bnvcon...
