The New York City Economic Development Corporation and Capital Business Credit have joined forces to launch the New York City Fashion Production Fund.
The $2 million public-private fund will provide financing for production at below-market rates to emerging New York City-based designer brands in order to bolster manufacturing in the five boroughs. Five to 10 labels are expected to benefit from the first round of financing, according to JoBeth Tananbaum, director of the New York City Fashion Production Fund. Loan recipients will have 60 to 120 days to pay off their loans, which will range from $50,000 to $300,000.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
