The aim of this paper is to identify and analyze the evolution of productive agglomerations in the Southern Brazil's clothing sector. Two factors underpin the methodological procedure: geographic proximity and sectoral concentration, combined by spatial concentration analysis. The first one by Exploratory Spatial Data Analysis, and the second by constructing the normalized Concentration Index. The results show: positive spillover of the agglomerations beyond municipal and even state boundaries; remarkable progress for the State of Paraná, as much in spillover as in concentration; stability in spillover to the clusters' municipalities, but with strong concentration, in the state of Santa Catarina.
