The Future of Fashion is Made in NY

Mayor de Blasio announced the launch of Made in NY: Fashion in February 2015 as an extension of the City’s Made in NY initiative, adding an investment of $15 million into the City's fashion industry. NYCEDC launched its first awareness campaign around New York Fashion week in September 2015, as well as a certification program for fashion designers who produce at least 75% of their products in New York City.

As the City kicks off New York Fashion Week, NYCEDC recently announced its 2016 campaign around Made in NY: Fashion. The new campaign tells the unique stories of five of the more than twenty Made in NY certified designers, and it explores the benefits of manufacturing locally through the words of Made in NY designers. Through documentary-style video, print, social media, web content, and more, the campaign aims to influence more New York City designers to become certified.
