“Mavens of the shmatte business” come together to pay tribute to the Jewish immigrant roots of New York’s garment industry. Cultural scholars and family members share stories about the 20 square block radius of Seventh Avenue that made 80 percent of the clothing in the U.S.A. in the 1920s. Dressing America shows how Jewish immigrants paved the way for the likes of Ralph Lauren, Donna Karan, Calvin Klein, Isaac Mizrahi and others.
