In the fashion world, intimate apparel is an extremely fast-growing world market. It’s been estimated that this industry generates over $29 billion a year and by 2026 it’s estimated to be worth over $51 billion a year globally. This industry has become so popular, that there is even an observance week created in its honor.
This is Intimate Apparel Market Week and it’s a week that’s observed quarterly. During this week, there are fundraisers and designers often take the spotlight. However, it’s not just a week for people working in this industry but is a week that everyone can enjoy by doing a little bit of shopping.
The History Of Intimate Apparel Market Week
This is an observance week that’s been around for quite some time. It was first created by the Underfashion Club — a nonprofit organization that was created in 1958 and was originally known as the Corset and Brassiere Women’s Club.
In 1963, this organization changed its name to its current name, but its mission has always been the same: to educate people about the opportunities that exist in the intimate apparel industry. They created Intimate Apparel Market Week to spread the word about this holiday.
