How do you learn about fashion or the apparel industry in general? 

You may have guessed from the title of this page, that you need to conduct research.   Actually, you do not personally have to conduct research.  However, you certainly need to find a good company to do the research for you.  After all, you do not want to go simply any where to find a resource that can provide you with good apparel or textile industry reports. 

The good news is that I have done some of the "research" for you.  I have actually "researched" the "research companies"...  Wow, isn't that wonderful.
For your convenience, Apparel Search has an informational section called "Fashion Education".  In this area, we have listings of fashion schools, clothing industry training courses, textile definitions, etc.  Among these educational categories, you will find the Apparel Research section.
The apparel research section, provides a list of companies that are relevant to "research" and the "apparel industry" (also the textile industry).  Some of the listings in the section are companies, some are associations, and others are educational institutions.  Many of which may conduct research for internal use or for members of their associations.  However, many of the companies incorporated in the apparel research section, develop apparel reports to be sold to other members of the fashion industry (like you and me).

Here are a few good apparel research report companies to get you started:
