NYC Garment District: Why Your Fashion Brand is Getting Ripped Off

23 ratings | 615 views
When most fashion brands start sourcing wholesale fabrics and trims, they go straight to the NYC Garment District. But what most fashion clothing companies don't know is that you're actually getting ripped off there. Most of the fabric and trim shops in the NYC Garment District are actually retail stores, and you're paying FULL price. That means double or even triple what you should be paying. Good news? There is a way you can source wholesale fabrics, trims and any other supply you may need for your fashion brand. And Jay Arbetman is your absolute one stop shop for this. Hangtags, labels, zippers, buttons, interfacing? He can get that too - at a great wholesale price. In this interview, Jay shares why indie fashion designers are seeing more success now than they were 5 years ago, what materials you can cut costs on and where you may want to spend a little more, and why buying from NYC’s garment district is the biggest mistake most designers make.
