NEW YORK — It was Day One for the U.S. Fashion Industry Association, a creation brought on by a new era for international trade.
The event was the 25th annual trade and transportation conference of the group that had been the U.S. Association of Importers of Textiles & Apparel. It coincided with the organization unveiling a new name, logo and updated mission of expanding its scope beyond goods entering U.S. borders to encompass a more international focus, while also embracing the Made in the USA movement.
