Fashion District NYC is where it all begins! From the highest and most sophisticated fashion to everyday casual wear, their styles originated right here in the Fashion District. This New York City neighborhood is also referred to as the Garment District.

This fashion paradise has been synonymous with design since its beginnings in the very early 1900’s. A wealth of the world’s top designers, as well as suppliers of every imaginable fabric and accessory are located here.

In fact, some of the most recognized names in fashion got their start here, in New York City's Fashion District.
