Factory Tour of Fashions Unlimited: A Renaissance in Baltimore’s Garment Industry
June 26 @ 8:30 am - 9:30 am$10
If you thought that the garment industry in Baltimore was a relic of the past, think again! Since Fashions Unlimited was founded in 1976, this local company been manufacturing clothing for over forty years and its South Baltimore factory is still going as strong as ever.
With sewing machines and a skilled workforce of designers, cutters, and sewers, Fashions Unlimited produces a range of products from bathing suits for start-up businesses to sportswear for Fila, Nike, and Champion. The company even makes jackets for Mount Everest climbers and high-tech jerseys for European soccer leagues so that coaches can monitor everything in real-time from a player’s heartbeat to her waning acceleration in the second half of the game.
Please join us and company founder Phil Spector on a tour of the Fashions Unlimited factory in action and learn how “Made in the USA” is happening here in Baltimore.
P.S. Our tour is indeed at 8:30 am in the morning. The factory is in production from 6:30 am until 2:30 p.m. and we wanted to do our tour when it is in full swing.
