A motley crew of people from all walks of fashion life attended a rally today to support NYC’s ever-shrinking
Two students, Charlie and Amanda, from Parsons and FIT respectively, spoke about the amazing experience they’re having in NYC because of the proximity of their schools to the Garment Center.
A punked-out Malia Mills reminisced about building her business in NYC and the amount of talented labor here. Then finally Nanette Lepore, the organizer, took the stage.
Nanette, looking very chic in a leopard dress and perfect golden highlights, warned everyone that she had a tendency towards ranting about this cause. She asked that legislation be put into place to provide tax and other incentives to keep garment production here in NYC.
It was certainly inspirational. For more information, check out the Save The Garment Center website.
