Built In Seattle™ Project Promotes Seattle Garment District
Built for Man, led by Founder and Creative Director Francisco Hernandez, has been designing fashion apparel made using natural fibers for seven years in Seattle. The label has been using the manufacturing facilities of Tasty Tiger, a producer of spandex and slinky knit products maker that has been in business in Seattle since 1997 and provides its facility to Built for Man during off-hours. Those two companies began their cooperation with help from Steven Paul Matsumoto, founder of Stigmare Couture Marketing, Bellevue, Wash., and a consultant to the textile and apparel industries. Matsumoto has been working for more than three years to cultivate a regional supply chain and manufacturing resources to support independent and global brands in a Seattle-based garment district.
Built for Man will preview its Fall/Winter 2014 collection at its fashion show, "The Man of the Future," in Seattle on March 19.
