NEW YORK — A new world order is shaping up for apparel and textile manufacturers.
On the floors and in seminars at Texworld USA and Première Vision Preview here this month, where exhibitors were showing their spring 2013 fabric collections, executives stressed the importance of understanding the evolution of their industry in order to survive in a complicated and difficult climate. This includes devising a sustainability strategy that serves the environment and the public, but also results in better materials and cost savings, as well as a balanced sourcing plan that takes into account the strengths of countries and regions across the globe, such as rising costs in China and increased interest in manufacturing in the U.S. and the Western Hemisphere.
