The ICON360 non-profit was created to empower fashion designers of color with independent labels, by providing them with capital to grow and scale their businesses.
“During this crisis I thought it was critical to do everything in our power to support designers of color. I’m incredibly inspired by the resilience of designers who are making bold pivots in their business. As a fashion community we have an incredible opportunity to help scale the businesses of designers who are thriving even in the middle of a pandemic.” - Brandice Daniel
The current economic climate has brought forth uncertainty for designers. With the halt in productions and dramatic declines in sales, Harlem’s Fashion Row decided to take action and assist designers of color through these unprecedented times. The mission is to dedicate 100% of ticket sales to the new non-profit, ICON360, providing a safety net for designers of today and the future.
