First and foremost, I would like to apologize for no blog topic yesterday. I hope that everyone had a great St.Patrick's Day (for those who celebrate)!
What's going on in the global fashion industry right now? Quite a lot, to be honest. Here are a few interesting things going on in the industry:
Foreign Trade Zones in the United States are becoming useful for apparel companies wanting to delay paying customs duties until the product reaches the US, resulting in less time between when the duties are paid and the product reaches its retail/distribution destination. This, in turn, results in a more effective cash flow allowing the manufacturers time to use the money for other things until the duties must be paid.
Local apparel companies meet demand of uniforms for Afghan troops, helping their economy. Multiple apparel companies have been set up in order to meet the high demand for uniforms for the Afghan military.
