MAS and Design Trust Collaborate on Garment District Study
February 13th, 2010, 8:00 pm
MAS has partnered with the Design Trust for Public Space to analyze the fashion industry’s presence in Manhattan’s Garment District. As the City begins to evaluate its policies for retaining garment manufacturing in Manhattan, the Design Trust and its fellows are investigating the fashion industry ecosystem of designers, patternmakers, wholesalers, and others to get a better understanding of its composition to help inform the debate. The MAS/Design Trust collaboration is an exciting new venture in which we will provide research support for the Design Trust’s Made in Midtown report and website launching in April. Additionally, MAS will host a series of programs this summer to publicize the report’s findings and shape this issue into a public discussion. Learn more about this project here.
