The Bridgeport Art Center, across the street from Zhou B is starting to put more focus on the city's emerging fashion designers and creating a system to help them gain footing in the industry.
The mega center for the arts and events, home to more established companies like Coyle & Herr, hosts 75 workspaces for artists working in 2-D, 3-D and performance. As Crain's reports, starting this fall, it will rent affordable space at 180-5,000 square feet to 40 fashion designers under the name Bridgeport Fashion Center. The project will open this year during October's Fashion Focus.
