Official Press Release

August 16, 2011- Seattle's Fashion Group International is setting it sights on helping local companies source and manufacture their products closer to home. Many companies are choosing domestic production in a trend that is being seen industry-wide. Benefits of domestic apparel production include speed-to-market, quality control, social responsibility and reduced shipping costs. Although many companies hesitate to produce domestically due to pricing or minimum production requirements, Fashion Group is confident that the manufacturers presenting at the September 'Made in the USA' event can be viable resources for small and medium-sized companies looking to start or maintain domestic production. Companies scheduled to speak at the event include KAVU, Portland Garment Factory, ITC Accessories, Unique Textiles, Emerald Sport Sewing, Luxe Riot, Grafeka Custom Apparel and NW Textiles. The event is scheduled to be held from 2-4pm on Wednesday, Sept. 21st at The Bravern in Bellevue.
