If you are researching fashion industry statistics, some of the best resources are government websites.  Many governments provide stats on imports and exports as well as general domestic manufacturing etc.  In regard to textiles and apparel, you can find a great deal of information by browsing the internet (at little to know cost).  However, some times it is a bit challenging to find fashion statistics for the current year.  If you run into troubles finding
current information, you may want to try some of the research companies such as Textile Intelligence, Global Sources, Research and Markets, or Mintel.

Apparel Search has created a few charts based off of census data.
