The team behind Italy's successful ItalianModa B2B apparel industry marketplace is extending its concept with the launch of USStyle.net, a new trading portal for the American fashion and textile industry.

The main goal of USStyle.net is to help industry professionals get in touch with American fashion and textile manufacturers or wholesalers.

All of the companies that belong to USStyle are paying members, and according to Maurizio Verga, CEO and founder of both ItalianModa and USStyle, this makes the marketplace a reliable source for any textile or fashion need.

Buying services on offer include search engines, an industry-standard directory, e-catalogues, surplus auctions, buying groups, and a 'StyleAdvisor' service.

Maurizio Verga is also behind the launche of similar marketplaces in Romania, Bulgaria, and Hungary.
