Made in America

Manhattan Fashion Directory is a resource book for the fashion industry which highlights emerging and established designers and is written and edited by celebrity stylist Angelique Max. Recently, MFD launched a new issue featuring American-made designers throughout Manhattan. Their Made in America issue features exclusive interviews, collaborations, events, and tours surrounding the movement behind domestic design and production. Along with the new issue, MFD is now offering Made in America tours across Manhattan giving fashion enthusiasts a glimpse into the importance of buying American-made clothing, accessories, and more. The tour highlights local manufacturers and domestically sourced products, such as Nanette Lepore, 3x1, and Billy Reid. Tours range from one to four hours and includes copy of the Manhattan Fashion Directory (longer tours also include lunch). And it's not just for the ladies; there is a menswear tour, as well as plenty of listings within the directory specifically catered towards men.
