While consumer and business needs change, regions with such storied histories as the Greater Baltimore region often benefit from established, multigenerational companies. Greater Baltimore is seeing growth in many industries but one of the most significant has been the construction industry due to the growth in commercial and residential development.
In the last decade, the Baltimore region has quietly emerged as a hub for marketing and creative agencies developing a reputation for branding and digital marketing not only for many local businesses but for national and global brands.
While not a fashion mecca like New York or LA, Baltimore has been named a top shopping city and designer Christian Siriano is a graduate of the Baltimore School for the Arts. Baltimore’s proximity to New York makes it an ideal location for emerging fashion designers and boutiques. Joining us today for Why Baltimore is Christopher Schafer, proprietor of Christopher Schafer Clothier, a custom tailor based in Harbor East, and founder of Sharp Dressed Man, a non-profit that provides local men with recycled suits.
