Sourcing in the Americas
As labor costs and problems continue to rise in Asia, U.S. retailers and brands are looking to bring more of their production back to the Western Hemisphere. Free trade agreements like CAFTA and the U.S.-Columbia FTA, allowing for duty-free access to these markets, add to the appeal of manufacturing closer to home, bringing better quality control, shorter shipping times and a more stable operating environment to the supply chain.
Stylesight presents the latest trends and developments in materials for Fall/Winter 2014, revealing the key themes, colors, fibers, weaves, hand, patterns and design directives for the season.
