Help Make DC A Fashion Capital – Fill Out The Fashion Census Today!

Let your voice be heard and make your fashion business count! In a historic effort to document the size of the fashion and retail industry in Washington, DC, the Greater Washington Fashion Chamber of Commerce (GWFCC) is launching a market research study.

Dubbed the “Fashion Census”, it is the first market research study of its kind that will attempt to accurately survey the needs of the fashion and retail industry in Washington, DC. By launching this survey, which the WDCEP helped produce, the GWFCC aims to gauge the size of the industry and identify the resources that are needed to support this emerging creative economy.

Data collection for the Fashion Census will take place from February 2009 through April 2009. The results of the survey will be compiled and formatted into a research report and needs assessment publication that will be used as an advocacy tool for the industry.

GWFCC is dedicated to growing, strengthening, and promoting the Fashion and Retail industry in Washington, DC. By taking the time to fill out this survey, participants provide GWFCC with the critical data needed to draft the industry needs assessment and complete a fashion industry feasibility plan, both of which will be used as an advocacy tool to demonstrate the need for dedicated resources to support our industry as an emerging creative economy in Washington, DC.

The survey should take no more that 25 minutes to complete and your individual responses will be kept confidential. Click here to complete the survey.
