New York City Needs A New Sustainable Model for Fashion Production

 

Sometimes an industry simply can’t move forward without changing the conversation and embracing more sustainable business models.  My name is Bob Bland, and I am a Brooklyn-based serial entrepreneur and community art advocate. I'm also a professional apparel and graphic designer with previous experience everywhere from Ralph Lauren to Marc Jacobs. I founded Brooklyn Royalty in 2006 as a growing number of industry veterans grew tired of designing quality merchandise extolling the virtues of New York City, only to have it produced in China. We dedicated ourselves to a vision of completely Made In USA labels utilizing local sourcing in the Garment District and all five boroughs whenever possible. In the last two decades, the U.S. has lost 80 percent of its apparel manufacturing jobs, and post-recession there has been little growth because designers lacked the infrastructure, resources, and industry support necessary to make substantial gains in domestic production.

Made in USA...not a bad idea! In fact, a GREAT idea!
