THE LIST

FASHION VENDOR DIRECTORY


welcome and please enjoy
the journey that we've laid out for you here
in this, the third directory of vendors and
suppliers located in New York City's Garment
District. You'll meet a versatile jeweler named
Dave who also makes guitars, and Osman who
sells the most glorious fabrics from back home
in Africa. Behind every business and factory
there are many people you might never meet
them or know their names, but their livelihood
depends on you and your business. We hope
that you'll support the vendors that you'll find
within these pages and that they'll always be
there just when you need them.

special thanks
to Parsons The New School for Design for
supporting this project and to my research
assistants Ciara Gay and Eileen Pappas
who pounded the pavement in the heat of
summer, knocking on doors and finding so
many new vendors to profile here. Eileen
has started working on a amazing millinery
project inspired by the city and the using
these directories as her reource.
