The vibrancy offered by New York City is unique It has a wealth of financing options, incubators, a multicultural workforce. With its emphasis on fine arts and cultural diversity, New York offers much to inspire current and future fashion icons. This epicenter of American (and global) fashion is home to some of the biggest players in the fashion industry.
February and September are pivotal times in the New York fashion design calendar. Designers from around the world gather to show their collections for the upcoming season at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week. This coincides with our Fashion week and we actually see it as an opportunity. Fashion merchandisers and buyers, writers, photographers, celebrities and socialites attend these shows and other in town. Their opinions greatly influence which new designs will become available to the general public and what styles will become popular.
