In an effort to welcome more parties to the ongoing debate about the New York garment center’s future, the Council of Fashion Designers of America and the Design Trust for Public Space have teamed up to commission a comprehensive study of the fashion industry’s presence in the neighborhood and its place in the city’s creative economy.

Called “Made in Midtown,” the study has two tracks and is expected to be completed in about six months. The first involves interviewing designers, factory workers, fashion school deans and other industry stakeholders in the garment district, Sunset Park, Brooklyn, and other clusters of fashion production to determine what works, what doesn’t and what would make the infrastructure more visible and accessible to the broader public. Results will be posted on the trust’s Web site, designtrust.org.
