Local Fashion Production Films

‘Make it in Manhattan’ Values New York Manufacturing

— March 13, 2012 — Social Good
The newly released film Make it in Manhattan has championed a worthy New York City cause. In partnership with director James Belzer and handbag architect Michelle Vale, the piece has drawn viewer attention to the value of local production in a city prone to overseas business development.

According to Vale, a committed domestic fashion advocate, New York City designs should be manufactured within the region, just like her purses. Although “Made in Italy” or “Made in France” tags are highly regarded, the Make it in Manhattan film suggests that this is troublesome, especially given rising unemployment rates. With cameos by fashion moguls Bibhu Mohaparta, Yeohlee Teng, Christian Cota and more, Vale’s persuasion has received a resounding vote of confidence.

Whether or not one is for the grassroots movement, this cinematographic project points to a pervasive issue in the fashion world.
