Abstract: The strong export growth of clothing products despite trade restrictions is investigated, with advanced industrial countries in Western Europe and the US dominating the world economy before World War II, and less developed countries concentrating on raw materials production and supply. The development of production in Asian newly industrialising countries (NICs) is traced, and the clothing industry is now global. There is a comprehensive discussion of the validity of the international product life cycle (IPLC) theory proposed by Vernon. International rankings in clothing exports in 1990 and 2000 are compared with a shift in production evident from developed to developing countries, but not all developed countries have lost their competitiveness. The regression models for clothing exports are reviewed, falling into groups with either a significantly increasing or decreasing trend, and there is further information on these two major groups. The situations in Italy and North America are reviewed in greater detail.
