Who is garmAnto?

Our very own Designer; Anthony Lilore is currently outfitted with a Google Latitude enabled smart-phone.  Why?  Because his every move is being mapped out to visualize the functionality of the Garment Center.   Enter garmAnto.

His character is tweeting HERE and on Facebook through HERE.


The project, entitled “Does proximity matter” to the fashion design process in New York’s Garment Center, will show just how vital this area is to fashion design and how unique it is in the world.  Anthony started carrying the GPS on November 29 and will have it through Saturday before students in Columbia University’s Crowd Sourced City Workshop (part of their Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation curriculum) will process the data and do a final presentation on December 16th.


Don’t forget to check in with garmAnto on Twitter and Facebook and let us know if you see him in the Garment Center!


Look Great.  Feel Great.  Do Great.
