NEW YORK — The chicest thing to wear this fashion week may just be a black T-shirt emblazoned with the words “Save the Garment Center.”
Anna Sui conceived the idea for the T-shirt, which also has e-mail addresses of important New York City officials on the back, to raise awareness of the shrinking manufacturing and production facilities in the Garment Center. She has teamed with several designers to galvanize members of the Council of Fashion Designers of America to find a way to preserve the Garment Center. She specifically worked with Yeohlee Teng, who, on behalf of the CFDA, has been spearheading the issue and served as a liaison between the CFDA board and City Hall.

"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)
