Happy New Year from the entire Manufacture New York Team!!
Thanks to you and our talented community of NYC designers, 2013 was an unbelievable year filled with successes. From the successful completion of our $60,000 crowdfunding campaign at the end of March, to the grand opening of our Garment Center Pilot Program at 23 West 36th St in September, our inaugural Sustainable Textile Summit in November, not to mention the December announcements of our official partnerships with TexWorld USA for Market Week & Adorama for NYFW 2014- we truly could not have accomplished this much in 12 months without your support.
I also want to take this opportunity to extend my undying thanks + admiration to my two incredible business partners, Nelis Parts & Rob Sanchez. They have worked tirelessly in 2013 to improve the NYC fashion world in innovative and sustainable ways, and to create new opportunities for emerging Made In NYC designers in every way possible. I could not imagine running this venture with anyone else.
And finally, unlimited gratitude to the diverse and amazing MNY team- Juliette, Amanda, Seth, Charles, Patrick, Margaret, Saba, Ron, Steven and most recently, Breuk and Staley- together we can (and will) accomplish everything our designers ask of us. Thanks to you too, designers, for believing in us and using our knowledge and resources to enhance your collections. We exist to serve you, every day.
Here's to the future, and to all of our continued success in 2014!
Best Wishes + Happy New Year,
CEO + Founder
