Intimates and Swimwear Manufacturers & Retailers
The goal is to identify and compile a list of potential manufacturers and retailers for designer Jason Wu.
- A few lists of intimate apparel manufacturers for private label exist including from Thomas Net and Fashion Dex.
- Fashion Dex lists 13 manufacturers including direct links to US based Hemingway Apparel, Tempe based Arizona Fashion Haus, and California based Chester Line.
- The Thomas Net list includes manufactures from the Midwest, Northeast, and California.
- For more affordable options, Gelmart, based in NYC, manufacturers apparel for stores such as Hudson Bay, JC Penny, and Lord & Taylor, as well as private label brands including French COnnection, Lively, and Samantha.
- Spain based (with a NYC office) Nextil offers textile manufacturing as well as final garments for intimate apparel and swimwear.
- Argyle Haus also offers manufacturing for both intimates and swimwear.
- Lists of intimate apparel and swimwear buyers have been available for purchase for several decades. One such list is made by WFC.
- There is a wide range of specialty retailers in the United States and Europe for both intimates and swimwear.
- In addition, each apparel category has its own market in places such as NYC.
- A list of the top 100 specialty stores was produced by the Chain Store Guide.
