What is the Manhattan Apparel Project?
You shop. We fund art classes for kids.
The Manhattan Apparel Project is a social fashion brand that aims to bring art education to local youth regardless of background, means, or gender. All of our workshops are completely free of charge and funded through sales of the Manhattan Apparel Project line of clothing.
Led by emerging and established artists and designers, the workshops explore a variety of different styles and media as influenced by each guest artist. The collaborative works created during these sessions in turn serve as inspiration for our clothing and accessory line.
Each tee tells a story
Every one of our garments has a small fabric patch attached that was hand-drawn by a child in one of our workshops.
The tag has a unique code, that when entered online, brings up an image of the child who created it along with a few fun facts.
