If you are looking to produce in New York or already source and manufacture here, you should attend the City Source Expo at FIT. This is their second show this year and will have over 60 New York-based companies that are ready to answer questions and take orders. These vendors focus on apparel, accessories, sportswear, knits and include sample and patternmakers, graders, trim and hardware specialists and other local resources. These companies are here because they want to work with emerging designers and understand your business needs. Even if your thinking about starting a fashion business, it’s never too early to start sourcing and learning about opportunities here in New York.
