Just a few blocks south of the bustle and bright lights of Times Square, Manhattan’s famous Garment District pulses with the imagination, creativity and energy that embodies the city as a whole. We’re happy to call this hustling midtown ‘hood home, where inspiration arrives at every turn. Here are some of our team’s favorite go-to’s.
Based in Copenhagen, this gem of a brand has opened a few locations throughout the city. With its ever-rotating selection of colorful, quirky goods, from kitchen gadgets, to home, to office supplies, you’re guaranteed to find some treasures. The brightly lit, colorful store presentation only adds to the fun. Bonus: everything is wildly affordable and totally smile-inducing.

Well before its Project Runway fame, Mood Fabrics has been coveted as a Fashion District favorite for its incredible array of textiles. Trust us, it doesn’t disappoint in person! Here at Project Gravitas, we may not use fabrics from Mood but are more than happy to stroll the aisles for hours to take in the countless patterns, textures and colors.

We head to the Museum of Modern Art when we need a break from the chaos of midtown. There’s nothing better than relaxing in the courtyard to collect your thoughts or rebooting your energy with a wander through an exhibit.
