Showroom New York is the first of its kind in New York City. The concept of the showroom is to incubate and nurture young talent in a non profit spirit. Motivated by its mission to support apparel manufacturing in New York City; The Garment Industry Development Corporation (GIDC) launched Showroom New York in January of 2008. Showroom New York and the GIDC's efforts are contributing to ensure the Garment District will be there for the Ana Sui, Elie Tahari and Marc Jacobs of tomorrow. One of the main requirements for submission into the showroom is manufacturing in New York. Without local apparel manufacturing, New York will cease to be one of the fashion capitals of the world.
