New York, fashion3.JPGNovember 1, 2009 - We recently received notice from the Committee for Open Fashion NYC, organizer of Fashion Camp 2009, requesting that the fashion.nyc domain name be reserved for use by New York City’s fashion industry. The Committee recommended that fashion.nyc:

  • Should present a complete and unbiased directory of the city’s fashion industry.
  • Care should be taken to assure that suitable control is exercised over those listed in the directory to assure that they are indeed city businesses.
  • That FASHION.NYC serve as a means to locate fashion resources beneficial to the city’s fashion industry – suppliers, manufacturers, designers, fashion houses, and students.
  • That a simple fill-in form providing a webpage for new entrants into the fashion industry, e.g., www.fashion.nyc/newcompany, be made available.

The Committee for Open Fashion NYC is exploring FASHION.NYC’s content, business model, and governance structure. We have offered to assist the Committee with its explorations as part of our quest for models for other important city portals.

Learn more about fashion.nyc at Open Fashion’s .nyc’s website or see our fashion.nyc wiki page.
