NYC Fashion Week Expected to Bring in Big Bucks
Fashion Week is estimated to bring $887 billion, according to a report from the New York City Economic Development Corporation.
Events like Fashion Week attract more than half a million visitors to New York City each year.
"New York has become a brand," said Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney, D-NY. "It used to be that everybody talked about Paris or Milan, but the New York industry is even larger."
The fashion industry employs over 180,000 people in New York City, according to Maloney.
