NEWARK - Western fashion brands are starting to turn their backs on China as a sourcing destination due to issues ranging from the impact of COVID-19 lockdowns to bans on the imports of goods made with forced labour, according to a new study.

The report, by Sheng Lu, an associate professor in the Department of Fashion and Apparel Studies at the University of Delaware, stresses that China remains one of the most popular sourcing destinations with many brands committed to the country's internal market.

However, it says that many fashion companies have significantly reduced imports of apparel from China which is no longer their top sourcing destination, having been overtaken by rivals such as Vietnam.
