Brooklyn —

Local fashion designer Bob Bland is on a mission to transform “Made in the USA” into this season’s most coveted label, beginning with on-the-rise talent here in New York City.

“We have to encourage designers and manufacturers to come back to New York City and want to design here,” she says.

Bland, 30, has been working full-time for months on Manufacture New York, which she says will be the city’s first all-in-one fashion design house and factory. The incubator-production hybrid, which will host a launch party later this month, will not only be a haven for indie designers but a public showcase for what it takes to produce clothing that’s manufactured locally.
