About

The United States Fashion Industry Association (USFIA) is dedicated to fashion made possible by global trade.

USFIA represents brands, retailers, importers, and wholesalers based in the United States and doing business globally. Founded in 1989, USFIA works to eliminate tariff and non-tariff barriers that impede the fashion industry’s ability to trade freely and create jobs in the United States.

Headquartered in Washington, D.C., USFIA is the voice of the fashion industry in front of the U.S. government as well as international governments and stakeholders.  With constant, two-way communication, USFIA staff and counsel serve as the eyes and ears of our members in Washington and around the world, enabling them to stay ahead of the regulatory challenges of today and tomorrow. Through our publications, educational events, and networking opportunities, USFIA also connects with key stakeholders across the value chain including U.S. and international service providers, suppliers, and industry groups.

 

The top priority for USFIA is the health and safety of our members and your customers, and COVID-19 represents a threat to the industry.  Sometimes it is difficult to find the latest information so we are providing you with links to the international resources that can help us better understand this evolving situation.  You can access the resources by clicking here. We will regularly update this information. If you have questions, or are looking for specific information, please let us know.

We want to share with you how USFIA members are speaking out in support of the Black Lives Matter movement. 

 We also want to share a brief statement on behalf of USFIA:  

These are times that call for unity and solidarity with all Americans. Fashion brands and retailers, our global partners, and especially our customers, support the values of equality and justice for all.  We have a role to play in the communities where we live, the communities we do business in, and in the political debate here in Washington D.C. USFIA supports our members and their efforts to address racial inequality in the United States. One message that resonates from our members is that we all need to speak out and condemn the systemic racism that has plagued our country for too long. USFIA supports our members as we listen to each other and as we work toward ending the legacy of injustice and fulfilling the American dream.
