As a nod to Andy Warhol’s legendary studio “The Factory”, THE DISTRICT FACTORY shined a spotlight on local artists and designers manufacturing today’s hottest trends. Showcasing what they have in stock including art, jewelry, apparel, reconstructed vintage and more, THE DISTRICT FACTORY also mixed monthly rotating art installations, music, specialty cocktails and more.

Founded on the belief that you can make a living doing what you love, THE DISTRICT FACTORY encouraged the entrepreneurial spirit of emerging designers by facilitating exchanges with the community that resulted in awareness, support, and ultimately commerce.

Taking place in 2012, a portion of the proceeds of the April thru June installment benefited Dress for Success Miami.
