2018 Fashion

Apparel design, manufacturing, and wholesaling activities are concentrated in the Los Angeles region, but there is a significant fashion industry presence in San Francisco as well. Although apparel manufacturing in the state has declined, design-related activity strongly contributes to maintaining the apparel industry’s presence in California. The many apparel design and merchandizing schools that are located in the state attract talented students from all over the world.
