NEW YORK — A crucial rezoning of Manhattan’s Garment District is coming to a full vote of the City Council on Thursday, putting designers, manufacturers and advocates of the industry on edge over the future of their community.
Since 1987, landlords in Manhattan’s Garment District have been required to add a square foot of garment space for every square foot removed for some other use. A special district was established then under the administration of Mayor Ed Koch.
Exclusive: Trademark, the highly acclaimed line by Pookie and Louisa Burch is ceasing operations. Resort 2019 will be the brand’s final collection.
