New York City is the fashion capital of the United States and arguable the whole world! Home to some of the most famous and talented designers, the city holds a rich fashion history that can be found in what is called the NYC Garment District.
Located at the heart of Manhattan between Fifth Avenue and Ninth Avenue, from 34th to 42nd St, it is the city’s original hub and current life-line of the fashion industry. Here one can find the home to several well-known designer labels, their showrooms, production facilities and sample sales! Yes sample sales!! Apart from the amazing architecture of the high-rise workshops, what makes the district is so unique is its concentration of fashion businesses and talent. It is unlike any other city in the world, yep, not even Paris has this many fashion businesses located in the one area!
Obviously the Garment District is a must-see on every fashionista’s list! Such a special part of NYC, there is even a ‘walk of fame’ just like Hollywood. Here you can find the names of great designers such as Diane Von Furstenberg, Calvin Klein and Ralph Lauren, all who made such an impact on the industry today.
