Episode Details

All agreed that New York City is the "fashion capital of the world!" Factories may have left New York for China, Bangladesh, India, and Viet Nam, countries with a cheaper labor force. But what is left - here in New York - and preserved in conjunction with great educational institutions is the Intellectual property: design, creative talent, and the money. The apparel industry is not dead; it's just not the same.
