Closing the Gap 2021-2022
ICON360 and Gap Inc. partnered to 'Bridge the Gap' between HBCU funding and the next generation of fashion leaders. The inaugural program was launched in 2021 to provide financial awards to deserving HBCUs that encourage black students to thrive in the world of fashion.
Royal Icon Award
At Harlem’s Fashion Row’s 14th Annual Fashion Show and Style Awards, ICON360 and Crown Royal Apple partnered to produce the Royal Icon Award, an initiative created to invest in crisp and creative emerging talent.
Four talented designers showcased their newest collection on the runway and were awarded for their outstanding efforts to influence the culture of fashion!
In 2020, various fashion and beauty brands became more vocal about supporting designers of color. One of the greatest lessons learned is that collective engagement promotes positive change. Harlem's Fashion Row is grateful to be part of the movement that has been pushing the needle forward.
A Common Thread
In the spring of 2020, Vogue and CFDA’s ‘A Common Thread’ donated $1 million to ICON360 in an effort to support black designers amid the Covid-19 pandemic.
Thank you CFDA and Vogue!
