And to start off this new feature, we could think of no other person to be our first Staff Spotlight than the fabulous Eddie Kent: longtime Garment District employee, fashion designer, and pop culture fan, Eddie makes The Garment District a more beautiful, bright, and fun place to work and shop.

Eddie Kent arrived at The Garment District in the 80’s restyling 60’s and 70’s fashions. Over the last 20 years Eddie has expanded his creative abilities to other areas, such as window displays, merchandising, and now modeling! The Garment District sells Eddie’s collection of pop culture magnets, underwear, and ornaments for the holidays. Divas, such as Lady Gaga, Divine, and Cher are often the subject of Eddie’s work.
