We have decided to remove the full
table of contents from the Apparel Search Directory. In all honesty, it
was way to large and served little value. We have thousands of pages relevant
to clothing, fashion, textiles, etc., and it is simply to crazy showing a full
list of apparel links on one page. Apparel Search has so many pages that
the full table of contents that we had displayed really did not make it any
easier to navigate our site. Below you will find some of our most popular
fashion industry categories. From these points on Apparel Search, you
can gain access to the world of fashion... Explore and enjoy.

the dates and locations of fashion week events, trade shoes etc.
