Manufacture NY// Benefit Fundraiser on Thursday at 61 Local!

Manufacture New York  will celebrate the incredible resilience and strength of our local community in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. We will be holding a recovery benefit for the hard-hit Red Hook area of Brooklyn. Join the local designers of Manufacture New York (www.manufactureny.org) in a silent auction benefit for Red Hook Initiative (www.rhicenter.org) of one-of-kind designs, made here in NYC. Also, you can find out more about the Manufacture NY movement, and how to help us bring back local apparel manufacturing jobs and resources to NY. Together, we can thrive and create an innovative, community-driven incubator/factory hybrid for the new generation of fashion professionals.
