UNITED TO ADVOCATE FOR THE SURVIVAL OF THE NEW YORK CITY CUSTOM COSTUME INDUSTRY

Tickets now on sale for an eight-week limited engagement through September 26 at 234 West 42nd Street. Formerly the home of Modell’s, world-renown design firm, Thinc Design, has transformed the Times Square space into an immersive maze featuring more than 100 of the industry’s most beautiful and complex garments. As guests make their way through the exhibit, they will get to see up close the detail and craftsmanship typically only seen far away on stage or screen. Costume makers and experts will be on-site demonstrating their techniques and skills and interacting with guests, and multimedia elements will provide a rare opportunity to get a behind-the-scenes look at the process. This one-of-a-kind, immersive exhibition can only be seen in New York City’s vital Theatre District. All proceeds from the exhibition will raise money for the Costume Industry Coalition Recovery Fund, which continues to support one of the hardest hit sectors of the entertainment industry.

In May of 2020 amidst the COVID-19 pandemic New York City's custom costume industry came together to form the Costume Industry Coalition.

 

Our immediate goal is to act as a united front to ensure our future as a vital part of the entertainment industry not just in New York City but around the world.​​​
