WASHINGTON — The Obama administration is ramping up initiatives to boost U.S. manufacturing and investment in the second half of the year, and the fashion industry is a key component of the government’s Made in America blueprint.
From supporting U.S. textile and apparel manufacturing interests in trade negotiations and resolving industry-specific trade issues with other countries to holding a first-ever foreign investment summit aimed at attracting new business, government agencies are helping promote the fashion industry’s Made in USA cachet.
Alberta Ferretti's "Rainbow Week" sweaters are back. The designer closed her #MFW show with a few day-of-the-week sweaters, which first debuted on the catwalk last January as part of the pre-fall 2017 collection. #wwdfashion (📷: @delphineachard)
