Thanks To Ralph Lauren, New York Is In The Money

-------

Ralph LaurenIt’s not just rescue puppies and Paris’ École des Beaux-Arts that have fallen into Ralph Lauren’s good graces of late. Today, WWD reports that the designer’s company has donated $500,000 to the Fashion Manufacturing Initiative, which, launched last month by the CFDA, Theory CEO Andrew Rosen, and the New York City Economic Development Corp., aims to raise funds to help New York’s garment industry thrive. It’s nice to see that the New York-born Lauren (who caught some flack for producing the RL-designed 2012 Olympic uniforms in China) is rallying to support the home team.
