THE CLOSER: Tribune Standard’s Tawfik Mounayer will ring the closing bell today at the New York Stock Exchange to mark the end of NYFW. Ever the opportunist, he will be accompanied by a clutch of model wearing items from his fall line. But Mounayer’s message is deeper than that. He will donate some pieces to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society to help raise awareness about the disease. His brand aims to inform consumers about where their clothing is produced and why. Mounayer’s sources from a women’s knitting cooperative in Bolivia as well as through local pattern makers and artisans right here in New York City.
