Welcome to wearables. As Lee and I put together our first Meetup, I started a subreddit for us to share links and discuss the topics related to wearables.

This meetup will serve as a central location for independent & emerging designers in the NYC area to collaborate, ask questions, share resources and learn from industry experts in a range of topics- production, retail strategy, design development, press/social media, sustainability and more. ABOUT MANUFACTURE NEW YORK: Manufacture NY is a fashion incubator/factory hybrid dedicated to providing independent designers with the resources & skills to streamline their production process & transform local manufacturing into the most affordable, innovative option for all. Our headquarters will include a fully-equipped sampling room, manufacturing facilities, classroom space (open to the public), private studios for rent and a state-of-the art computer lab complete with the industry’s latest software for design + production. We will also offer a dedicated area for experimentation with environmentally-friendly fabric washes, dyeing, finishes and special textile applications.
