  • Retail Panic As President Trump Re-Ignites His China Crisis During Rose Garden Presser

    "For the fashion industry, made in China represents 40% of our apparel, 65% of our footwear, and 80% of our accessories.

Meanwhile, our domestic customers are returning to the stores and, if China is not going to be a long-term option, where are we going to go? Of course, at this point, someone usually says 'Make it in America' which is a great idea but made in USA amounts to about 3% of the marketplace, and the obstacles to grow that segment are, frankly, immense and unrealistic. While trying to appropriately source product, it has become extremely difficult for the fashion industry to react to the inconsistent trading whims generated by the Trump Administration."
