In an article in this morning’s WWD, Rosemary Feitelberg highlighted that both The Design Trust for Public Space and the Council of Fashion Designers of America are collaborating on a project to hopefully revitalize New York City’s Garment District through their Making Midtown: Sustaining Design and Production in an Evolving Garment Center initiative.
A three-part plan that aims to reinvigorate design, manufacturing and production in the garment district, the group is looking to submit formal proposals to city officials early next year. In preparation, the DTPS and the CFDA will be holding open workshops in the Fall for anyone who wants to learn more about the district or contribute an idea to the revitalization initiative. So it got me thinking, what would you do to boost the Garment District? How would you make it the epicenter of fashion design and production once again? Share your thoughts and ideas below!
