Re:Work Radio is back with another episode on LA’s Garment District. This time we explore the Garment District’s rich history through three generations of strong Mexican women. Vanessa, Re:Work Radio staff, comes from a family of women whose lives are intricately tied with the LA Garment district. Starting with her great-grandmother who was a garment worker in the 1920’s, the family eventually owned and operated a bridal shop in Mexico for over 50 years — always returning to the Garment District for materials. This is a story about love, labor, and transnational solidarity.
