Vivienne Westwood at the Races... Ringmasters... Save the Garment Center...

Is Dame Vivienne Westwood embracing the establishment?... Nanette Lepore’s efforts to save the Garment Center are in full force...


SAVE THE GARMENT CENTER: Nanette Lepore’s efforts to save the Garment Center are in full force again this season. At the designer’s show this morning, Lepore will have a postcard on each seat, which reads “Save the Garment Center” on the front. On the back it will be stamped and addressed to the attention of Mayor Michael Bloomberg asking him to take action. “The future of American fashion depends on NYC’s Garment Center,” it reads. “NY’s factories, shops and emerging design talent need your support to preserve our city’s heritage. Promote Made in the USA. The time to act is now. Save the Garment Center.” Each guest is asked to sign the back of the postcard and drop it into the nearest mailbox. In addition, the designer will launch support pages on Facebook and Twitter today in order to gain even more support for the cause.
