‘Garments Without Guilt’ at world event

Sri Lanka Apparel presented ‘Garments Without Guilt’ at the 13th WWD Apparel / Retail CEO Summit in New York, in November 2009.

Hosted by Women’s Wear Daily, the topics at the Summit ranged from the urgent need to change the fashion system and building a hot brand, to the outlook for holiday sales and the evolving U.S. trade policy, according to a statement by the Joint Apparel Association Forum (JAAF).

The summit brought together the leading minds of the fashion world, said Forum (JAAF). Over 200 CEOs and Presidents from such leading companies as Aeropostale, Bloomingdales, Chanel, Christian Dior, Lululemon Athletica, Giorgio Armani, Jones Apparel Group, Macy’s, Marc Jacobs, Phillips-Van Heusen, Saks Inc, Under Armour, and VF Corporation, attended the event.

“Sri Lanka stood alone as the only country that embraced ‘ethical business and manufacturing practices’ as a way of life. And with the aid of the government of Sri Lanka through the Ministries of Finance, Industrial Development and Export Development and International Trade that has always been proactively supporting the cause, Sri Lanka Apparel is today the world’s number one ethical apparel sourcing destination,” said JAAF.
