The fashion industry infects a wide spread of fields, starting with the production industry, to other industries, such as service, media, tourist, etc., in addition to possessing the power to raise Tokyo’s industrial strength and its attraction as a city, therefore it is positioned as an industry which the metropolitan government should develop and promote both strategically and selectively.
