We work with an amazing array of talented people. Here is a random selection of just a few.

The mission of the Council of Fashion Designers of America is: To strengthen the influence and success of American Designers in the global economy.
The Design Trust was able to bring everyone to the table–city officials, designers, manufacturers, property owners–and outline a vision for the future of the Garment District as a creative hub that we could all support.
