The goal of the .FASHION top-level domain is to encourage artistic expression, imagination, appreciation, and commerce among fashion manufacturers, retailers, designers and consumers, and provide them with a platform on the Internet to talk about, sell, buy and interact with each about all things related to fashion.

About 31 percent of fashion designers work for apparel, piece goods, and notions merchant wholesalers; and 13 percent worked for apparel manufacturers. Fashion is a major industry in several industrialized countries, including Japan, Italy, and France.

Fashion plays a significant role in the way people identify themselves and others. It is an important means of self-expression and self-identification.

The .FASHION top-level domain will provide an identifiable means of communication between fashion designers manufacturers, vendors, advertisers and ultimately to purchasers of fashionable clothing and accessories.
