The Australian Fashion Council (AFC) is updating the current TFIA Directory with a new and improved AFC Directory.
The AFC serves to strengthen and support a vibrant and innovative industry for fashion and textiles in Australia. Recent global uncertainty coupled with industry consultation has amplified the need for greater collaboration and connectivity.
With this in mind, the AFC is ensuring the industry has the most up to date, accurate information to source and connect local suppliers, manufacturers, service providers and brands. This is a free listing for the purposes of industry collaboration.
We have created nine industry categories for your initial selection, which will then take you through to another page to outline your business capabilities. Should you feel that your business aligns with more than one category, there is an option to add another section. Should you feel your business is not represented in the listed categories, there is the option to select ‘Other’ and outline your type of business.
Following are the nine industry categories to guide you in your selection:
Brands – Labels and Brands.
Retail – Bricks and Mortar, Online Only, Omni-Channel, Wholesale Fashion Agents.
Business Services – Legal, HR, Freight, Packaging, Global Business Support, etc.
Creative Services – PR, Marketing, Stylists, Creative Directors, etc.
