Wear New York

This morning, I saw a NY1 news piece on Wear New York, an event designed to promote and celebrate New York designers. In a very strange coincidence, one of the leaders of this movement/event is an Olympic Gold Medalist in fencing, and early on in my custom clothing professional life, one of my big custom design projects was making custom fencing jackets for some very serious fencers...

Second little piece of info, many years ago, I worked for a company who had Only Hearts as a client.  Small world, eh?

So, for those of us who are local, we are being asked to Tweet, Facebook, Instagram, and generally share information about this event.  If you have a workroom, a showroom, a fabulous ensemble made in New York, share it on social media, and help this movement get some traction!

Sigh, this is when I wish I still lived in New York. Too bad being a native NYer doesn't count - sounds like a lot of fun!

Interested to see what kind of things the hashtag #wearnewyork turns up, too! You can still shop online with Ny based designers, though.
