NYC fashion instructors advocate for retail industry change-

Launching an American manufactured only ecommerce shop that has strong visual appeal coupled with corporate social responsibility.

Fashion forward and visually appealing marketing campaign.
PRLog - March 18, 2014 - NEW YORK -- Teaching college level fashion courses brought Bishop Collective co-founders, Mai Vu and Dimitri Koumbis, together; first as colleagues and now as retail entrepreneurs. Having worked in various facets of the fashion retailing industry prior to moving into academia, both felt that there was a need for stronger corporate social responsibility among US-based retailers and, specifically, a priority to onshore manufacturing jobs.

“Manufacturing in the States is not a new initiative; it is just not a priority. The reason is due to costs associated with competitive wage rates, turnaround times due to quality control, and a lack of production hands. These factors drive the cost of goods up and eat into a retailer’s profit margin. We feel it is the retailer’s responsibility to educate consumers on the benefits of American manufacturing, such as job creation, better quality of life for workers and, ultimately, strong design attributes and product quality. If this takes away from overall profit potential, so be it.”

Enter Bishop Collective, whose contemporary retailing approaches and fashion-forward design aesthetics are already impacting consumers who want quality over quantity. Based in Brooklyn, NY, Bishop Collective has created a diverse product mix that both national and international consumers can appreciate, while simultaneously driving manufacturing back to the US where it was once a prolific, well-respected industry. Their goal is to lower the cost of production for American manufactured goods and redefine “American made.” Visit bishopcollective.com for more information on their products and initiative.
