China National Garment Association To Organize Sino-Italian Fashion Summit

SILK ROAD: Reinforcing the relationship between the Italian and Chinese fashion industries and developing new strategies is the goal of the 2019 Sino-Italian Fashion Summit, which will run from June 24 to 26 in Hangzhou, an important industrial hub located half an hour from Shanghai.
The summit, which will include the participation of major Italian institutions, as well as designers and managers from important fashion houses, is organized by the China National Garment Association, a Chinese government association for the fashion industry.
The summit, which is patronized by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, will offer a clear picture of the Chinese fashion sector and will put the focus on the evolution of the country’s customers seeking high-end Made in Italy products.
“In the last decade, the Chinese market dramatically changed. Ten years ago, many international luxury players were registering a double-digit growth in China by leveraging only on the strength of the brand and on the huge dimension of the market,” said Francesco Fiordelli, official representative for the relationships between the China National Garment Association and Italy. “The market we are facing is more and more populated by a new middle class, mature and structured, with spending habits more precise and completely

Garment District Rezoning Goes Forward With City Council Approval

It’s official — the New York City Council has approved rezoning of Manhattan’s Garment District.
After decades of wrangling and dispute among city officials, landlords, designers and long-term tenants — the sometimes warring parties have come to a truce. Thursday’s landmark vote frees up parameters that were put in place in 1987. Since that time under Mayor Ed Koch’s administration, which established the district, landlords in Manhattan’s Garment District have been required to add a square foot of garment space for every square foot removed for some other use.
Garment District loyalists lobbied for a building earmarked for garment manufacturing, a tax-incentive program to enlist more owners and to provide tools to upgrade the industry and train workers for long-term survival of the garment center’s nucleus. Community Boards Four and Five, Pratt Center for Community Development, the Council of Fashion Designers of America, the Design Trust for Public Space and The Municipal Art Society, have been pushing for Garment Center preservation.
The city’s Economic Development Corp. and the Garment District Alliance Business Improvement District, which more or less covers the area bordered by 35th to 41st Streets and Fifth to Ninth Avenues, have been behind the rezoning, which they feel would benefit the

Artist Laurence Jenkell to Unveil ‘Candy Nations’ in Garment District

IT’S A WRAP: At a time when candy colors are back in fashion, French artist Laurence Jenkell’s candy sculptures will be unveiled in the the Garment District Wednesday.
But her work has more of an intercontinental theme than a sugary-sweet one. Originally commissioned by the G20 in advance of its 2011 summit in Cannes, “Candy Nations” will be on view along Broadway from West 36th through West 39th streets. There will be 20 nine-foot sculptures enwrapped in what look like national flags. “The funny thing about candy is that it rings a bell to anybody in the world. Candies, of course, are international,” Jenkell said. “People love their countries, so they love seeing these sweets. It’s the type of sculpture that when you see it, you remember it normally. Sometimes you want to touch it or you may get the flavor of whatever flavor it is. It reveals all the senses.”
Reached in Saint Tropez Friday, where she was preparing for the opening of a solo exhibition at the Artmedy Gallery next month, the artist said the same gallery recently showed her work in its Istanbul outpost. Her Garment Center installation won’t be her only presence in New York, either. Jenkell’s creations

Styling the Sari: New Anthology Broadens Sartorial Reach of Indian Garment

Considering that it is a garment worn by a near estimated 100 million women in India alone and many more around South and Central Asia, the sari has gone relatively undocumented.
Realizing there was a knowledge gap and that increasing urbanization was eroding some of the sari’s daily wear in favor of western dress, Malika Kashyap decided to begin The Sari Series. The non-profit project comprises an anthology, documenting how to drape over 80 sari styles through short films, and three videos exploring the garment’s past, present, and future.
The project’s aim is multi-pronged. First, it acts as a record preserving regional variations, which are myriad. What most people picture when they think of a sari is in fact a single style of draping, known as the Nivi. Secondly, the series also asks viewers to ponder the garment’s role going forward, and it’s Kashyap’s hope that it will serve as inspiration for people to continue innovating with the sari.
Kashyap spoke exclusively to WWD about the project, a $ 175,000 undertaking backed by luxury Indian sustainable retailer Good Earth and Kickstarter:
WWD: How was this project conceived?
Malika Kashyap: The idea behind this project is two-fold. First, to develop an accessible cultural documentation of the sari though film and

Garment Center Rezoning Debate Ratchets Up

ZONING BATTLE HEATS UP: Rezoning New York’s Garment District — a debate that has been dragging on for decades — is about to intensify significantly. In what appears to be a preemptive strike in advance of Monday’s City Planning Commission meeting, about 40 designers, union leaders and elected officials are planning a press event on the steps of City Hall Friday at noon.
For nearly 200 years, the Midtown West neighborhood has housed the largest concentration of manufacturers, designers and suppliers — the heart of New York City’s garment industry. Those looking to lift the zoning argue that the continued dwindling base of manufacturing (due largely to more affordable overseas production) no longer merits the 1.4 million square feet. In total, the neighborhood has 1 million square feet earmarked for apparel manufacturing and another 1 million set aside for support purposes. Earlier this year New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio proposed a $ 136 million “Made in New York” campus at Bush Terminal in Brooklyn’s Sunset Park.
Friday’s recommendations have been gleaned from a series of six Garment Center Steering Committee meetings with landlords, tenants, designers, BID officials and various interested parties in the past two or three months. The Council of
