Hot! See Why This Year 10 CFDA’s {Fashion Incubators} Are So Happy

This year, CFDA celebrates its 10th anniversary. Since its inception, the foundation has helped set guidelines to improve the fashion industry and created {Fashion Incubator}, an innovative mentorship program that fosters young designers as they attempt to establish their careers.

This year as part of their of their expansion and to address the concerns of the {Fashion Incubators}, the CFDA along with KCD, produced digital fashion shows. “…one of the biggest challenges we heard from the Incubator participants is getting press and retailers to attend presentations or visit showrooms,” explained Ed Filipowski, KCD President. “We wanted to find a way for the industry to support the graduates in the easiest possible way—digitally.”

The result, of course, for the designers is greater visibility of their collections, where in the past only a rarefied group of editors had access or were able to view their collections. “The opportunity this digital showcase brings our designers is the exposure they need at this critical time when establishing their brands on their own,” noted Steven Kolb, CFDA CEO.

The 10 Fashion Incubators in this group are Reece HudsonTimo Weiland, Whit, Ari Dein, Burkman Bros.,Daniel VosovicJonathan SimkhaiEmanuela Duca, Isaora and Number: Lab.  All created a two-minute digital short to accompany their showcase. View them all below
