About this project

Our M.O.

We are trying to keep it local! We manufacture 100% of our goods in the USA, 90% of them are made right here in New York City. Whenever possible, we choose American Made fabrics and trims over ones made over seas. 

We're looking to help grow the U.S. Apparel Industry by supporting our Mills and Factories and creating strong bonds not only with our manufacturing partners, but also with the people that buy our goods.  We are interested in being part of a bigger, sustainable community. Let's build one together.

About Victory Press

Victory Press was founded by Jessica Humphrey and Jonathan Cammisa as a collaborative effort to fill what they saw as a void in the market: functional, stylish gear to brave the elements of the city. Founded in 2011, they first started working out of their tiny apartment in Vinegar Hill. Over the past three years, they've managed to pull their resources to build a website, open a pop up shop, and design three seasons. They now work our of their studio in Williamsburg.

Please visit www.victorypressnewyork.com for more information.

Why we need your support

The early support and enthusiasm of the Victory Press community has allowed us to build a strong foundation for a sustainable business. From people we met in our personally funded Pop Up Shop in Williamsburg last summer to the folks we've met through our online shop, we've been able to gain the momentum a sustainable business needs to survive.  

Now that we've started receiving larger orders for our Spring Collection from our retail partners, we face the financial hurdles of pre-production costs. Kickstarter offers us broader reach to spread the word on our initiative while also building a community around our idea.  By pre-ordering through incentives, you will give us the opportunity to meet fabric and production minimums, support our local manufacturers, and grow into a sustainable business. 

For our rewards, we've selected a capsule of our favorite items that are quintessentially Victory Press.  From the mountains, to the beach, to the streets, we invite you to join us in our endeavor to support our local community.

Risks and challenges

Production for our goods take 4-6 weeks. We've been producing our garments with the same manufacturers over the past two seasons and have a good amount of experience in their intricate designs and complicated construction. We're confident that our first round of rewards will be delivered by July 2014.

We will add more of our Fall 14 Collection rewards with delivery dates extending beyond August 2014 if the first round of incentives are pledged for, but quantities will never extend beyond our regular and responsible production capacity.

Each garment is sewn with quality materials by small fabrics mills. During production, it may happen that the fabric we used for samples is no longer available. We will let you know if by chance we need to find a substitution.
