Editorial Reviews

"Schmatta: Rags to Riches to Rags" brings to life the vibrant, unexpected history of the Garment District, which for many years was the heart and soul of Midtown Manhattan, but is now in danger of disappearing. For thousands of immigrants the garment industry was a path to their American Dream, but today most of those jobs are gone. A microcosm of the economic and social forces transforming our nation over the past one hundred years, "Schmatta: Rags to Riches to Rags" tells the story of this vanishing industry through the voices of the people who have experienced its highs and lows.



A must-watch for anyone who wants to understand our current economic problems!



Bonus material: "Save the Garment Center" - Fashion industry activists fight to keep NYC's Garment District alive.



"Levin does a magnificent job."

- Variety



"An engrossing, elegiac history"

- NPR



"Essential viewing"

- Glamour Magazine
