The Fashion District of New York City


Fashion District is an excellent illustration of how cities can magnify their unique character to become magnets for tourism, business and culture which make the city and its districts “global capitals” in every sense of the word

The Fashion District organization


The Fashion Center Business Improvement District, a not-for-profit corporation, was established in 1993 to improve the quality of life and economic vitality of Manhattan’s Fashion District. Through programs in the areas of streetscape improvements, sanitation and public safety services, marketing and promotions, economic development, and community service, efforts are aimed at promoting the district as a strategic midtown business location and ensuring New York’s position as the fashion capital of the world


Home to more than 1,000 showrooms and couture houses, and hundreds of iconic designers, the Fashion District is an international fashion capital and the global leader in wholesale buying in the United States. Located conveniently in the heart of midtown Manhattan, the Fashion District serves as the creative hub of the apparel industry, and is a destination for wholesale buyers, designers, stylists, retailers, students, shoppers and fashionistas the world over.
