Fashion Industry Contacts – Associations

Australian Retailers Association

I recently received an email request for assistance with finding fashion industry contacts. My advice was to visit a number of Australian association web sites. After sending the reply email, I thought other people may benefit from a list of Australian associations involved with fashion. So here they are.

P.S. If you come across any others or have updated information please make a comment on this page and we’ll update our list.
