Nanette Lepore Is Fighting To Save The Garment District Where Was Everyone Else

On Friday afternoon, a group of fashion advocates, including designer Nanette Lepore and Representative Diane Waston (Democrat of California), gathered in the representative's Washington offices to discuss the state of the fashion industry and demonstrate their support for the creation of a fashion caucus in congress
Among the items on their agenda: the protection of intellectual-property rights for designers, the creation of enterprise zones across the country to promote local talent, and the need to ensure that New York City’s garment district doesn’t become a denizen of more condos and tourist traps. “This caucus isn’t about the image of fashion, it’s about the business of fashion,” said Christine Brooks-Cropper. Where were the other big name designers DVF, Ralph, etc.
