The Apparel Search
website is an industry directory which provides members of the fashion industry
with educational information regarding virtually every aspect of the
and textile industry. If you are interested in researching various elements
fashion, textiles, clothing, or related products & services, you
have found the proper place.
Although we do not currently publish
glamorous magazines or create prime time television shows about fashion,
we are technically a fashion media company. As such, the Apparel Search
Company has been developing fashion portals for more then a decade. By far,
our largest and most significant work to date is the
ApparelSearch.com directory (the site you are currently visiting).
In addition to the
Apparel Search directory, we also pride ourselves in the fact that we moderate
Fashion Industry Network community. FIN is one of the worlds leading
business to business social networking websites devoted specifically to
members of the fashion industry. Our apparel media company also owns and
Fashion Newspaper which provides
the industry an additional outlet for reading
fashion news from around the globe.
Search Fashion Directory is essentially an all encompassing guide
that has originally been designed to educate members of the fashion industry.
Over the years as the site developed, we have learned that although we originally
intended to assist only our industry, we have inadvertently helped consumers
as well. According to industry pundits, Apparel Search is an excellent resource
for helping members of the clothing industry as well as retail consumers.
Based on our current estimations, our research tools & guides are approximately
85 percent geared toward the apparel industry and roughly 15 percent toward
fashion consumer relevancy. Although our primary focus is on tools to aid
the industry, we have an extremely large volume of fashion consumers browsing
through our pages.
are a few sectional examples of our business to business directory that
have inadvertently become beneficial tools to consumers as well as the industry.
Fashion Trend Reports
: Despite the fact that our fashion trends & forecasting section
is classified as a business tool, we have found that consumers of fashion
also find our research to be helpful. Good luck with finding a consumer
that is not interested in the latest styles and fashion trends for the
/ Clothing Store Directory : Our retail directory has been created to
help clothing wholesalers (distributors, manufacturers, production agents,
etc.) locate clothing retailers so that they can conduct business with
one another. However, in addition to being a retail buyers guide, our
clothing stores directory has also clearly become a favorite for consumers
searching for new and exciting shopping experiences. As new boutiques
or department stores add their information, this provides consumers
with new places to shop.
Fashion Blog Directory
: When blogging about fashion first came on the scene, Apparel Search
was one of the first companies to create a directory of the fashion
blogs. We did this to help blog authors find a place to call home on
the internet. Sure, their own blog was their actual home, but how could
people find them easily. Apparel Search made it a bit easier for independent
fashionistas and street bloggers to be found. Although our guide started
as a service to assist bloggers, the directory turned out to be beneficial
for "consumers" that were interested in tracking style trends, sales
events, color forecasting, etc. As we have all learned, the fashion
blogs are great resources for learning about new designers and their
collections. It is no secret that the blogging community loves to write
about fashion week and other special events. These are great opportunities
to track fashion celebrities, designers, and new collections all at
one time. Great for the industry, and great for shoppers.
Fashion News : The
Apparel Search fashion news section has originally been designed to
provide fashion industry news in a timely manner so that members of
the garment industry could stay up to speed on what is happening in
the industry. Over the years, we have fined tuned our news resource
to include shopping news as well. We believe that our fashion news should
educate both the industry and consumers.
- Fashion Jobs : The beauty
about our fashion jobs section is that it is beneficial to people that
are currently employed in the worlds greatest industry. And at the same
time, it helps our industry grow. This section of our site is clearly
helpful to people in the industry and people that wish to be in the
