WASHINGTON — Designers Yeohlee Teng, Nanette Lepore and Stan Herman arrived here Wednesday night to raise political awareness about efforts to preserve New York’s Garment District.
The group met with Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D., N.Y.) and staffers from the offices of several congressmen, including Rep. Tim Ryan, (D., Ohio) of the Congressional Manufacturing Caucus. Along with Ryan, Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D., N.Y.), who represents Garment District neighborhoods, attended a panel where the trio spoke about the importance of the district to the city, the future of U.S. manufacturing and designers.

"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)
