American-Made Friday Links

First, a thanks to Mrs. American Made for featuring one of my head-to-toe looks on her blog. This is just one example of how my fellow bloggers have been a huge support to me.
Lots of news lately about things American made, especially the NYC fashion industry (most likely spurred on by NYFW).
Here are a dozen articles and videos that you should read and/or watch if you haven't done so already:

  1. I like the one article about how the Moto X will be on the runway with models for Fashion week. And that the Moto X colors can be customized. -Jack A
