Save the Garment Center: Save the Garment Center’s Mission is to Promote, Preserve, and Save New York City as Fashion Capital of the World.  The Garment Center is a city-protected area within Midtown Manhattan designed to retain apparel factories and manufacturing jobs and discourage property owners from converting the space into commercial offices. Originally the area had 7.7 million square space preserved for apparel manufacturing and housed 105,000 manufacturing jobs. Today due to new development, illegal conversions to office space, and production outsourcing pressures, the center contains 1.1 million square feet of garment manufacturing space and employs 7,100 factory workers.  Save the Garment Center was started in 2007 as a grassroots campaign by factory owners Samanta Cortes, Anthony Lilore, Paul Cavazza and Larry Geffner. This campaign was in response to City Hall’s plans to lift the 1987 zoning laws that had protected the leases of the Garment Center fashion tenants for the past 23 years. Save the Garment Center’s initial goal was to keep the manufacturers and suppliers in New York’s Garment Center from being pushed out of the district, or having to shut down all together. In 2009 Save the Garment Center became a 501c6 trade association.
