About Retrospettiva, Inc.

Retrospettiva is a supplier of moderately priced women's apparel under private labels selected by its customers. The company markets its products exclusively in the United States directly to large wholesalers, national retailers and buying organizations, and directly to women's chain clothing stores, boutiques and catalogues.

Additionally, the company arranges for the manufacture of garments for customers. Retrospettiva contracts for the manufacture of its finished products only after its customers place purchase orders, including quantities, styles and designs. Since Retrospettiva is not involved in the design end of the transaction and the orders are in essence 'pre-sold,' the company has effectively removed the risk normally associated with fashion and design, a risk that the customer assumes by default.
