Are you a fashion designer or industry supplier? Do you have a showroom, label, or other fashion-related business? If so, we’d love to collaborate with you during New York Fashion Week!
As Fashion Week (September 10-17) rapidly approaches, we are looking to partner with indie designers, fabric suppliers, fashion showrooms, factories, and other fashion-related businesses in and around NYC who might have an interest in gaining social media followers and potential customers by participating in our Fashion Week festivities.
We love doing all we can to promote independent designers, local businesses, Garment District resources, and “made in NYC” products; each of these opportunities is available at absolutely no cost to your business. These are provided as a kindness to our customers, and as a way to increase awareness about smaller businesses and brands.
Partnership Opportunities for Fashion Week 2015 include:
Feature your business on our blog during New York Fashion Week. We’ll send you a short list of questions, which can be completed via email at your convenience–your opportunity to tell potential customers what your business is all about! (Please feel free to visit some of last year’s blog entries here and here.) We’re happy to include any product photos you provide, as well as links to your social media accounts and/or your online store. Blog will be heavily promoted via our social media feeds and is a good opportunity to pick up new social media followers, as well as potential customers.
Invite one of our Fashion Week Tour groups into your showroom or workspace for a brief visit. Group size is kept small (maximum of 8 participants, plus the tour guide) so as to minimize disruption to your workflow. Spend 15-20 minutes telling our group of fashion-savvy guests (many of whom are fashion designers, design students, and others connected to the industry) about your business and/or design process. You are welcome to hand out promotional materials during the visit; if you have clothing/accessories or other products for sale, feel free to offer these for purchase to our guests–several past showroom visit participants have gained repeat customers this way! The visit will be heavily promoted via our social media feeds. Due to time and travel constraints, your showroom/workspace must be located in or near the Garment District in order to participate in an in-person visit.
Gift Bag Participant
During Fashion Week, each of our tour guests receives a tote bag stocked with goodies from various New York City fashion businesses. Provide us with samples, coupons, business cards, brochures, promotional materials, or anything else you’d like (approx. 50 pieces needed), and we’ll include them in our bags!
To participate in one (or more) of these ways–or to suggest your own way to get involved in our Fashion Week tours–email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to hearing from you!
Too busy to participate during Fashion Week? We’re always looking for new resources and partners to participate throughout the year, either as an in-person visit for our tours, or as an inclusion on the coupon handout that all Garment District tour guests receive. Let’s talk!
