GIDC AT 20: The Garment Industry Development Corp., a nonprofit group backed by the City of New York, the UNITE HERE union and the apparel industry, plans to mark its 20th anniversary with a fund-raising cocktail party Thursday night. The event will feature fashion presentations from five up-and-coming New York designers: House of Diehl, Selma Karaca, Derek Green, Little Prince & Piggy and Katie Zorn. Sarah Crean, GIDC’s executive director, said the five have all been in business at least four seasons and made the bulk of their apparel in New York.

The event will honor Michael Groveman, chief executive officer of Bill Blass; Edgar Romney, vice president of UNITE HERE, and the New York City Council. Crean said the event is projected to raise $100,000, which will help support GIDC’s education and training programs.
