Duggal Greenhouse Lookbook_2021

Duggal and Bednark delivered the first 50,000 face shields to first responders on March 28, less than a week after receiving the go- ahead from the city’s Health Department to begin manufacturing in the Greenhouse. Our motto as we forged ahead: “MAKING THINGS BETTER TOGETHER.” Reliving its roots in what NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio described as a “wartime factory,” the Duggal Greenhouse served as a large and accessible space for PPE production to take place in a safe and socially distant manner. There were zero reported coronavirus cases during the entire project. “This is just an inspiring, beautiful effort, and we’re going to make sure New Yorkers see a lot about this and understand how powerful this is,” de Blasio said. “You’re going to see a surgical mask, gloves, surgical gowns, all sorts of things being made right here in New York City manufactured right here to protect our fellow New Yorkers.” “If our city, our state and our country need us again, I know we’ll be here. And I know you’ll be here,” Duggal said. “I hope they don’t. But if they do, we know we’re made of tough stuff.”
