Z Spoke Retail Coming to NY... Fund-raising for Fashion Doc...

Zac Posen is about to set up shop in New York’s Meatpacking District.

CLOTH BOUND: Aspiring filmmaker Vicki Vasilopoulos is using an innovative technique to raise the final funding needed to complete her first film, “Men of the Cloth,” a documentary about Italian master tailors. She has turned to a crowd-funding campaign on the global fund-raising Web site IndieGoGo, working with a number of men’s wear firms that are providing goods and services to those who contribute $100 or more. Carrot & Gibbs is providing silk bow ties; Mel Gambert will provide custom shirts; Ike Behar is offering Gold label dress shirts; Adrian Jules is offering a custom-made suit and a tour of its factory; Holland & Sherry, Isles Textile Group and Gladson Ltd. are all offering premium English suiting cloth, and master tailors Nino Corvato and Joe Centofanti (subjects of the film) are both offering a custom-made sport coat.
