From: ASAP


All the usual suspects from Seventh Avenue are in full noxious flame. - Stephen Holden/New York Times

An energetic satire of the fashion business. - Elizabeth Weitzman/NY Daily News

Gretchen Cleevely is spot-on as a grim little fashionista. - Ed Park/Village Voice

Edgy, often humorous satire about the New York rag trade. - Harvey Karten/Compuserve

Santiago makes a wonderful goddess, and Cleevely has the most withering stare since Elizabeth Taylor, 4 stars. - Dean Edward/Film Threat

Hernandez’s portrayal of a fey, self-consumed brand-name is dead-on. Sure to appeal to the fashionista set. - Bilge Ebiri/New York Magazine

Maher spins her tale briskly, one of the realest exposés of this seam-y, seamy biz you will ever see. - David Noh/HX Magazine

GARMENTO is an excellent feature film debut by Maher, whose insider knowledge and light touch makes for an enjoyable cinematic experience. -Yahoo movies

Garmento is a witty look at the garment industry. I did fall in love with Grayson, who reminded me of a slimy Buddy Hackett. - Phyllis Saitz/Long Island Press

Garmento is quite a lot of fun, especially if you actually cared about designer jeans when you were a kid, or if you're a desperate in serious need of some painfully fashionable eye-candy. - B.C. Edwards/Free Williamsburg.com

MacNichol is worth keeping an eye out for in the future. The film looks and sounds terrific. Grade A- - Edward Havens/Filmjerk.com
