MAS Releases Report on NYC’s Garment District
October 14th, 2011, 10:00 am
One year after our Garment District panel discussion at the 2010 MAS Summit, we’re excited to be releasing Fashioning the Future: NYC’s Garment District at the 2011 edition of the Summit, a report which is the culmination of our work on one of the fashion industry’s greatest assets – Manhattan’s Garment District. Today, with the re-zoning proposal, which would have significantly altered the manufacturing character of the district, off the table, it is time to acknowledge the strengths of the district, address its current needs, and plan for its future. Over the last year we have conducted case studies, gathered new data, interviewed dozens of experts, researched the history and explored a variety of policy recommendations. The recommendations detailed in the report offer a vision forward. To read about our report and watch our panel discussions, go here.
