FOUNDER

BRANDICE DANIEL

"For 13 years, Harlem's Fashion Row has worked to provide opportunities for BIPOC fashion designers, however we needed a way to provide capital. ICON360 was a dream for me. I wanted to create funding options for BIPOC designers who ware underrepresented in fashion. These designers represent less than 1% of designers found in major retailers. Access to capital is a major challenge. Thanks to your generous donations, ICON360 will be a solution for designers seeking capital to grow and scale their businesses which will change the course of history." - Brandice Daniel

"Harlem’s Fashion Row to Launch Nonprofit to Help Designers

The New York-based organization champions designers of color."

-WWD

"I'm incredibly inspired by the resilience of designers who are making bold pivots in their business," the statement continued. "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." Grants issued through ICON 360 — which is named after an award Harlem's Fashion Row confers at its annual New York Fashion Week event — are meant to help designers make these pivots and weather this difficult time."

-Fashionista.com

"The fashion industry has not been immune to the economic effects triggered by the ongoing coronavirus crisis. In light of the halt in productions and dramatic declines in sales, Harlem’s Fashion Row (HFR), a New York-based organization that champions designers of color, is stepping up to empower the fashion community during these unprecedented times."
