Exclusivity has a new name: Made In New York.
Barneys, the Council of Fashion Designers of America, CFDA, and the New York City Economic Development Corporation have partnered to bring us a collection designed by top New York designers, manufactured in the U.S.A. and sold only at Barneys.
Thom Browne, The Row, R13, Narciso Rodriguez, Altuzarra, Proenza Schouler and Rag & Bone are the featured designers with looks and accessories for men and women. Full collection in the slideshow above - many must-have looks. I'm swooning over the white/black trimmed Thom Browne coat and the Rag & Bone red fedora! And for the ladies on the hunt for a sexy and chic LBD, Barneys has you covered.
"We are a New York based company and the rich history of this city is deeply ingrained in our DNA. We feel a certain sense of pride in highlighting an industry that is still very much alive in New York," Barneys chief operating officer Daniella Vitale said. 10% of the proceeds from the Made In New York collection will benefit the Fashion Manufacturing Initiative.
The Made In New York limited-edition collection is available now Barneys.com and will be in display during New York Fashion Week September 10-17th at the Barneys storefront windows.

Jeffrey Fashion Cares
for months and are excited to bring you exclusive and original video coverage beginning with the model casting and ending at the after-party, including a sit down with NY designer
The 20th Anniversary of Jeffrey Fashion Cares was a sensational celebration of life and fashion. JFC founder, Jeffrey Kalinsky has so much to be proud of and thankful for. In a tender, heartfelt welcome, he recognized the hard work and contributions of co-chair Lila Hertz who has chaired the event, passionately and tirelesslyfor ten years. The runway show, which opened with selected looks from special guest designer Joseph Altuzarra, also featured designs from some of the world's top labels [all carried at Jeffrey] such as Lanvin, Givenchy and Dries Van Noten. If I had the power to change one thing about the fashion show, it's that I would have made it in slow motion... it was just that damn good! *Later this week, Style Mag VM will bring you full coverage of the event, including VIP backstage access and a one-on-one with Altuzarra. [For now] I have more than 70 runway images to share with you from Jeffrey Fashion Cares. These pics are raw; straight out of my iPhone... see what I saw!
