To accomplish this, the Fashion Service Network reaches beyond traditional resources and provides an all-encompassing service source for the fashion industry. The group contains leaders in all professional service areas.
The FSN meets regularly, exchanges information, communicates ideas, and discusses needs and opportunities. Interaction of FSN members has resulted in many business opportunities for their respective clients.
