FUNDING BIPOC DESIGNERS
In 2020, a number of fashion and beauty brands had been more vocal in supporting designers of color. One of the greatest lessons learned is we have to come together to create positive change. Harlem's Fashion Row is grateful to be part of the movement that has been pushing for change. As part of the commitment to uplift and support Designers of Color, we are proud to announce: Bravo Network has made a generous donation to HFR's non-profit ICON360!
ICON360 started in May of 2020 to help designers who have pivoted their businesses during the pandemic. We didn't imagine that we would be able to be a blessing to so many designers. There is still more work to do.
With the support of BRAVO, ICON360 has given the award to BIPOC designers who participated in Project Runway Seasons 17 and 18. Our 2021 started strong and focused!
