The New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) and Designers & Agents tradeshow have announced the winners of the first ever Made in NY Collective.
This coming Spring ’17 market, 12 emerging designers that are based and producing in New York City will receive a fully subsidized space during the show happening September 17th-19th. Designers will also receive access to individual and group workshops focused on brand building.
Ed Mandelbaum, Designers & Agents co-founder, calls it a win/win for designers, many of which have not had the resources to exhibit.
“The Made in NY Collective will provide a wonderful opportunity to the NYC based design community supported by this initiative,” said Ed Mandelbaum, Designers & Agents co-founder. “The result is a win/win; the selected brands will gain exposure to D&A’ leading retail audience and buyers will be introduced to a fresh crop of talented designers, many of which have not previously had the resources to exhibit in a tradeshow.”
