Manufacture New York
Manufacture New York is a hybrid fashion incubator and factory dedicated to providing independent fashion designers with the resources and skills to streamline their process, from concept to customer. We are driving the transformation of local manufacturing, so it can be the most affordable, innovative, and sustainable option for all.
Our headquarters, the Garment Center Pilot Program, is located in Manhattan's garment district, at 23 West 36th Street. It includes a fully-equipped sampling room, classroom space, computer workstations, and a conference/fitting room used by 15 incubator members and dozens of local fashion and accessory designers. Soon, we will also offer a dedicated area for experimentation with environmentally-friendly fabric washes, dyeing, finishes and special textile applications.
Our flagship facility in Sunset Park, Brooklyn is scheduled to open in 2014, and will include a cutting edge 40,000 square foot design, production, and technology incubator, and 120,000 square feet of vertically-integrated specialty manufacturing space, creating over 280 middle-class jobs and $60 million worth of annual economic impact in New York City.
Manufacture New York also provides a wide array of consulting services to designers and companies with regards to domestic sourcing and local manufacturing, product development, branding and marketing, business development and sustainability.
