    www.shopyoungandable.com Take a walk through New York City's Garment Center with designer Ann Yee, as she shows us how she sources materials and works with local factories to create her designs. We got a glimpse into the designer's world and learned that since her line's inception in 2010, Ann has made 95% of her collection locally in NYC. It's clear that Ann enjoys working with local craftsmen and manufacturers, which also gives her an element of control over the quality of each garment. Ann creates each collection with comfort and functionality in mind, while achieving the ever-elusive balance of uptown chic and downtown cool. Ann is drawn to texture and finds that combining different materials together is a steadfast way to make a dynamic piece. And with knitwear being the foundation of her line, she always incorporates an element of knit in each collection. Her SS 14 collection features easy-to-wear pieces like the effortlessly elegant Cecil Dress, textured crochet Linwood Pullover and breezy Canton Dress. Video by Tiago Chediak

      Following a 12 year career with mainstream fashion companies, Tara St. James left behind everything to launch Study NY in 2009. Its name, which often piques curiosity, was inspired by the lessons and growth acquired by starting her own line. While the line's initial focus was on seasonal manufacturing techniques--knitting, dyeing, weaving, etc--Tara eventually decided she wanted to specialize in "seasonless" clothing. Every collection these days is motivated strictly by what she feels is needed or missing on the market and by what her consumers are demanding but not being able to find elsewhere as she explains in this exclusive behind-the-scenes clip.

                Fashion designer and MAS Board Member Yeohlee Teng has been working tirelessly to promote a new vision for Manhattan’s Garment District as a hub for innovation and creativity for the fashion industry. In 2009, Yeohlee initiated the study Made in Midtown on behalf of the Council of Fashion Designers of America in partnership with the Design Trust for Public Space. In a video produced for MAS, Yeohlee walks the walk on West 38th Street and discusses how the proximity of pattern makers, pleaters, cutters and fabric suppliers and other vendors within the district make it possible for designers to take their concepts and turn them into reality. “Yeohlee showed her deep commitment to the District by opening a shop and studio on West 38th Street,” said MAS President Vin Cipolla. “She knows firsthand how important this ecosystem of supplies and services is to emerging and established designers.” The video was produced for MAS by students from a Long Island City-based high school, Academy for Careers in Television and Film.
