CIC Feature l Arnold S. Levine Millinery & Crafts

Stage Directions • Industry NewsTheatre Buzz • May 5, 2021

The Costume Industry Coalition (CIC) has been created to highlight the amazing work of its members in the New York costume fabrication industry. This week they are taking a look at Arnold S. Levine Millinery & Crafts, one of the CIC’s Milliners and Craftsmen. Join them as we take a moment to learn more about Levine’s long career ranging from teaching, designing, to today running his own millinery shop right here in NYC Garment District. Levine’s work can be seen across so many platforms: cruise ships, ballets, Broadway and beyond. Levine says it best, “we are optimistic and ready to get back to doing what we love to do!”

This CIC Feature is hosted by Industry Associate Edwin Schiff, edited by CIC Volunteer Batya Reich, and Produced by CIC Members Bethany Itterly and Brian Blythe.

The CICs over 500 costume artisans and experts are involved in every aspect of the costume industry, from concept to care. Since they started, they’ve partnered with a non-for-profit fiscal sponsor, The Artisans Guild of America, and began fundraising for its Recovery Fund. They also began lobbying the government to ensure the creative economy gets the relief it needs. A year later they are still recovering but they are ALL ready to get back to work. They’ve travelled a very long road and they know they still have a long way to go. But as the entire entertainment industry is poised to begin its recovery, the support they have received has fortified them with the strength to push forward. The Costume Industry Coalition can’t thank you enough.
