Biting the Core from the Apple

Posted by Mazeratie On Thursday, October 22, 2009


Considering the people and inspiration behind many of the brands we carry, issues like New York's potential rezoning of the Garment District hit rather close to home. Yesterday, led by designer Nanette Lepore, hundreds of Union Workers, fashion students and designers turned out yesterday in an effort to force Mayer Bloomberg to commit to the preservation of the Garment District before the mayoral elections in November.

  Now, you might be thinking ' This is a streetwear blog for a streetwear store. WTF does this have to do with the "Garment District"?' Here lies the crux of the issue:

“The fashion district is facing extinction, and small factories are being lost to developers.Without it, young designers cannot get their start in New York City.”
- Nanette Lepore to

  Streetwear IS small factories/business and it's built on the dreams and drive of young designers. A lot of our favorite brands started with some antique machine in someone's kitchen or bedroom and without the cultural/industry foundation that the Garment District represents a lot of them would never have made it. So in honor of small brands, small businesses and big dreams I hope Bloomberg comes to his senses and realizes that the Garment District does more for Manhattan than more condos or another tourist trap ever could.
