Made in NY: Fashion is the powerhouse of NYC’s fashion industry: creating, developing, and implementing programs to strengthen the city’s position in fashion design, manufacturing, and education.

Building a Community. Leading a Movement.

Made in NY: Fashion is a public-private collaboration to create, develop, and implement programs for New York City's fashion design, manufacturing, and educational sectors. Made in NY: Fashion includes:

  • Made in NY: Fashion Designer Designation: a group of qualifying businesses who use the Made in NY mark on their website and in promotional material to indicate support of the program and their commitment to local production. Made in NY Designers produce 75% of their production in New York City, providing a product pipeline to approximately 1,500 fashion manufacturers throughout the 5 boroughs. They include ready to wear, jewelry, and accessories that are all proudly Made in New York.
  • Fashion Manufacturing Initiative: a partnership between NYCEDC and the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) that supports local fashion manufacturing through grants, programs and collaborations, and a production database
  • Fashion Future Graduate Showcase: a curated physical and digital exhibition of top fashion graduates from leading NYC colleges, universities, and design institutions
  • #WEARNEXT: a city-wide public and private campaign to tackle waste and pollution in the fashion industry.
We know the future of fashion is Made in New York, and by driving more customers to our emerging designers and manufacturers we'll help them grow their businesses and create good jobs for even more New Yorkers.
