Fashiondex - The Fashiondex, Apparel Industry Publishers, was
started in 1992 by a fashion designer who had arranged her Rolodex into
types of fabrics and trims, instead of from A to Z. When she noticed that
everyone where she worked was using her Rolodex when they needed to do their
research and sourcing needs, she saw there was a need for a similar product.
Fashiondex was formed, that Rolodex was reproduced in book form, and
several months later the first Fashiondex was produced. They started
selling that directory and eventually created and published many other books
that their designer, and her industry friends, thought were needed to make
their jobs easier. In 1994, they launched www.fashiondex.com, the first
fashion-sourcing website and store. The Fashiondex, Inc. and its online
store, www.fashiondex.com, now continue with the same goals they had as a
resource guide company back in 1992. A goal to create the most
up-to-date, well-formatted and easy-to-use design-industry sourcebooks
available, along with publishing the best industry tools and books
available, for all those in, and entering, the design industries. Their
sourcebooks are unique, as they do not involve cross-referencing and leafing
through pages and they have kept the books small, so you can keep it on your
desk, or throw it in your backpack or totebag. They contact all
suppliers listed in their sourcebooks two times each year, to keep the book
and their customers as up-to-date as possible.
