Garment Center Documentary to Be Rebroadcast

From Dressing America.
Still from Dressing America.

Dressing America, a documentary that explores how the fashion business grew from humble beginnings into a sophisticated global industry, was made using FIT as a historical resource and for facilitating interviews. Dressing America takes viewers back to the sweatshops of the Garment District, down the runways at New York’s Fashion Week, and behind the scenes to the sample rooms of major manufacturers like Tahari-ASL and Nicole Miller to reveal the creative process that fuels this unique industry.

Among the featured participants are Stan Herman, designer; Fern Mallis, creator, New York Fashion Week; Nicole Miller, designer; John Pomerantz, retired CEO, Leslie Fay Brands, and FIT trustee; Laura Pomerantz, principal and founder, PBS Real Estate; Arnold Scaasi, designer; and Valerie Steele, director, The Museum at FIT.

The documentary, originally shown in 2014, is being rebroadcast this Friday, September 9, at 5 am and 10:30 pm, on WNET, and Thursday, September 15, at 9 pm, on NJTV.
