NEW YORK — The Design Trust for Public Space and the Council of Fashion Designers of America have launched Making Midtown, a three-part initiative to bolster fashion design and manufacturing and guide development in the Garment District.
Given Manhattan’s ever-tightening real estate squeeze, the neighborhood’s longtime future as a fashion hub has been a question mark for some time. “Making Midtown: Sustaining Design and Production in an Evolving Garment Center” is being put in place with the aim of delivering formal proposals to be reviewed by city officials and area stakeholders early next year.
