2015 has been a year of firsts for Nineteenth Amendment and we want to thank YOU for your unwavering support of our designers, domestic, micro manufacturing, and our mission to redesign the fashion business model.
Here are some highlights from 2015:
We expanded our designer reach in staying true to our promise that the best of the new designers can be found on Nineteenth Amendment. We currently accept only 12% of designer applicants and to date we have accepted over 400 designers, from 29 countries, 6 continents and 27 US States. Owning a Nineteenth Amendment designer garment is like having a piece of fashion history, from the next generation of great designers.
We moved from Ebay’s Incubator, to Pratt’s Brooklyn Fashion and Design Accelerator, and have now settled into our new office and first ever retail space at Bene Rialto in the heart of Manhattan’s Garment District. Stop by and visit us at 13 West 38th Street to see the garments you love!
We launched an unprecedented partnership with Macy’s Inc. For the first time ever over 6 million Macys.com shoppers can link out of macys.com to NineteenthAmendment.com and shop made-to-order independent designer fashion.
We sent four of our designers’ garments down the runway at Macy’s Front Row Fashion Show at Madison Square Garden. Did you catch the show as it aired live on the E! channel? If not, no worries! Here’s a recap.
We won W magazine’s and Decoded Fashion’s Best Digital Coalition for our innovative work with Macy’s.
Finally, on December 17th we hosted the first ever, hyper connected store-within-store digital trunk show. Read about what our in-store experience is like and get a sneak peek at what we have in store for 2016.
We’ve accomplished a lot in the past year and we could not have done it without our designers who inspire us everyday, and you, the amenders who believe fashion can be better. As a thank you for all of your continued support in 2015 here’s $19 towards your next purchase on NineteenthAmendment.com. Treat yourself to a very sweet (20)16 with the code NYE19 (expires February 1, 2016).
Looking forward to all we have in-store for 2016!
