Mayor Bill de Blasio's wife Chirlane McCray and 18-year-old daughter Chiara de Blasio wore locally-made clothing by fashion designer Nanette Lepore during Wednesday's mayoral inauguration at City Hall. "This city needs more creative entrepreneurs like Nanette Lepore who are committed to keeping our city's garment industry thriving," the Big Apple's new first lady said in a statement on Wednesday. McCray donned Lepore's purple "Skyscrape" coat ($578) over the designer's print "Wonderland" dress ($174 on sale), while Chiara rocked Lepore's leopard-print "Destination" coat ($374 on sale) with a camel-hued dress. Lepore is at the center of the fight to preserve and save midtown's declining Garment District.
