Sunset Park’s Industry City is working hard to showcase the flexibility its miles of space can provide makers. Its latest event is called “Fashion on the Factory Floor,” which showcases handmade apparel, accessories and jewelry from more than 50 independent fashion designers.

Sylvia Heisel is printing iPhone cases on site, demonstrating the technology for holiday shoppers that have probably never seen it before.

From the announcement:

“New York City is the epicenter of high touch, high quality production and innovation,” said Adam Friedman, Director of the Pratt Center for Community Development. “Fashion on the Factory Floor will create an opportunity to showcase the unrivaled talent in design and production that exists here and at the same time drive sales to the apparel manufacturing sector.”

“Fashion on the Factory Floor” will include clothing for men, women and children, handbags, jewelry and other accessories. Shoppers will have the opportunity to meet the designers and observe live artisan workshops. The complete list of designers and business hours is available at www.FactoryFloorBrooklyn.com.

The space will be open again this weekend, November 30th and December 1st, from 10 am to 6 pm.
