Labelling the Runway to Smooth Sailing

Crossing the Atlantic comes with a wardrobe change of regulations. Ensure your creations are US-ready with these must-know labelling tips:

  • Care Couture: Familiarise yourself with the FTC’s specific symbols and language for washing, drying, ironing, and dry cleaning. You might find a triangle instead of a chlorine bottle for “do not bleach,” so stay informed! We have the best tips for sending airfreight to the USA.
  • Fiber Content Count: The US wants details, down to the 5% mark. Even minor components like elastics need a shout-out on the label, while the UK allows a bit more discretion at 30%.
  • Country of Origin Confidence: While not mandatory, including your British heritage can be a charming detail. US Customs has specific guidelines for marking origin, especially for duty-free deals.

Beyond the Label: US Fashion Nuances

American streets speak a different fashion language than London’s cobblestones. Here’s a sneak peek into the trends and preferences you need to know:

  • Fast Fashion vs. Sustainability: While fast fashion still holds court, the US is buzzing with a desire for eco-friendly and ethical clothing. Highlight your sustainable practices to tap into this conscious consumer base.
  • Activewear Allure: Comfort and style reign supreme in activewear. Design garments that go from workouts to brunch and beyond to capture this booming market.
  • Size Inclusivity Matters: Embrace diversity! Offering a wider range of sizes caters to a vast and underserved segment of the US market.
  • Brand Storytelling: Weave a compelling narrative around your brand. Americans love authentic stories behind the clothing. Let your values shine through!
