Inspired by New York’s Garment and Meatpacking District, Garment District 813 will be a haute tribute to the historic Armature Building . The two featured designers, Ben Chmura and Raven Reda are creating everything 100% cut and sew! The perfect way to embody the true artistic roots of the runway fashion industry.
