PARIS — Leading French fashion brands on Wednesday signed a charter of good conduct with their subcontractors in a bid to preserve local know-how and jobs in the face of increased outsourcing.
The nonbinding document sets out measures designed to promote constructive dialogue. In it, brands pledge to pay manufacturers promptly and give them better guidance on production schedules, while subcontractors commit to diversifying their production capacities and client bases in order to become more competitive.
