NYC Fashion M.A.D.E. (Manufacturers Alliance of Design Educators) supports the teaching of garment manufacturing and technological skills to the fashion community.
We provide grants for educational initiatives filling the manufacturing skills gap through classes and workshops.
The organization seeks to accomplish this goal by enhancing the knowledge of existing workers, introducing innovations to the industry and teaching future generations.
In 2015, NYC Fashion M.A.D.E. was established with the support of local fashion companies Elie Tahari and MILLY. Both brands appeared on Project Runway and donated all proceeds from the winning looks to our 501c3.
