Topson Downs

Culver City, CA


Founded January 25, 1971, Topson Downs has over 40 years in the fashion apparel industry. We started in the downtown Los Angeles fashion scene, with all operations in one small building. Gradually, Topson expanded into manufacturing worldwide. In the late seventies, Topson Downs expanded into Mexico. As a pioneer in outsourced shipping, Topson started a trend that has become mainstream in the garment industry. The past decade has been a major expansion era for Topson Downs. In 1998, we expanded into China and eventually opened a China design room. Starting with junior apparel, we've gradually expanded our product line to include all categories of women's apparel. Since we started, the apparel industry has evolved drastically. Topson Downs was ahead of the curve and began focusing on accommodating the mass-market retailers and speciality stores. Through building these relationships, Topson Downs has become a reliable supplier for quick response manufacturing. In the past five years, The Topson Downs Group has shipped over 100 million units.

Topson Downs strives to conduct business in a manner that considers our impact on the planet. A healthy environment is crucial for our customers, business, employees, community, and planet. In 2009, our building renovation received a LEED Gold Certification, and is powered mostly by renewable energy via an offset from Renewable Choice Energy.  In 2015, we committed to a comprehensive sustainability plan that tackles a large scale of challenges. We are engaging with the Carbon Disclosure Project, and working towards achieving an Energy Star certification. We’ve opened dialogue with our factories about more sustainable production methods, especially in denim. The factories we work with across the globe are reporting their energy and water use, which we use to offer them reduction goals and create benchmarks of low-energy production. We're looking after our most important resource, our planet. After all, a polluted, energy-deficient world won't be good for business.

We have a strong desire as a company to give back to our community and neighborhoods.  Topson is very involved with Olive Crest, an organization that supports at risk families.  The past three years Topson has “adopted” over 30 families for the holidays with team members providing gifts and necessities to these special families.  Topson has been a big supporter of the Red Cross through disaster relief donation, blood drives, and apparel donations.
