City of New York Kicks Off Fashion Week with New $5 Million 'Made in NY' Campaign, Initiatives to Support City's Fashion Industry

***Due to weather concerns, this announcement has been moved indoors to the Main Fashion Week Entrance at West 33rd Street, between 8th Avenue and 9th Avenue***

The City of New York will mark the beginning of New York Fashion Week by announcing a new Made in NY marketing campaign featuring local designers and expanded programming to support the City’s fashion sector.  Building off of Mayor Bill de Blasio’s announcement in February that the City has tripled its investment in the fashion industry to $15 million, these new Made in NY programs will directly support and shine a spotlight on manufacturers and emerging designers in New York City, helping reinforce the City’s status as the fashion capital of the world.
