Tag-It Pacific has bought NextTrim.com, an online library of global trim designs and trends, in a move to centralise its trim images for the apparel industry.

The NextTrim.com website is designed to help firms stay on top of the latest trends in apparel trims.

It gives designers, merchandisers and marketers access to over 10,000 images of trims from labels to hang-tags, buttons to snaps, sequins to lace - and is said that to be the only comprehensive global database of its kind.

"We are adding significant visibility to the latest global and local designs of fashion accessories and trim," said Stephen Forte, chief executive officer of Tag-It Pacific.

"NextTrim.com offers relevant, real-time market intelligence, making more information available than ever before, all located in one convenient place - at our customer's fingertips."
