We understand how difficult it is to find the right resources to help you grow your fashion business...and that you may outgrow resources and need to look for new connections. To help, we created #SourceNFA to share which NFA Members offer support services for fashion businesses. By becoming an NFA Member, they've made a commitment to support our regional fashion industry. 

Your business needs are unique, and the services provided by these companies are unique. This is simply a directory - there is no judgement on the NFA's end as to whether these companies are the right company for your brand specifically. 

If you're an NFA Member and you have questions about any of these service companies and whether they might be right for you, please don't hesitate to reach out using the form at the bottom of this page. We would love to learn more about your needs to help make the right connections for NFA Members.
