The Voice of the California Industry:

The California Fashion Association is the forum organized to address issues of interest to the apparel and textile industry.  Manufacturers, design companies, contractors, financial institutions, service suppliers, allied associations, educational institutions, and all businesses participate and benefit.

Fashion is the largest manufacturing sector in the Los Angeles region.  Approximately 7,300 firms are involved in fashion-related businesses; it is a $24.5 billion industry, with approximately 200,000 direct and indirect jobs in Los Angeles and surrounding counties.  Employment in the California garment industry has surpassed New York’s head count by more than 55,000 jobs since 1999.

The California Fashion Association is the clearinghouse for information. We are a collective voice for the industry’s growth, prosperity and competitive positioning, with a focus on promoting global recognition of the “Created in California” image.

Our purpose is to generate international trade, interact with state and federal agencies, and provide assistance and information for compliance and labor issues, international trade, technological education, and general inter-industry networking.
