We want to capitalize on the fashion world’s increasing support for local enterprises and local consumption. The mission of Made in NY: Fashion is to make people aware of not only the beauty of their clothing but also of the economic impact of supporting and purchasing clothes that are predominantly designed, embellished, finished, or manufactured in New York City.
