Harlem’s Fashion Row is excited
to announce its second annual
Join us for 3 days of collection previews, designer breakout sessions with industry leaders, design competitions, networking dinners, and provocative and informative talks from publicists, buyers, designers, stylists, top brands, and more.
As the only conference created exclusively around the needs of multicultural designers, the Designer Retreat is the perfect place for designers to be introduced to fashion industry leaders, network with other designers, discover funding sources, learn about in-house design roles, and learn about strategies to grow your current design business.
We'll start this day with opening remarks from Brandice Daniel, founder of Harlem's Fashion Row, and then designers will go straight into a networking session with their fellow peers. Attendees will then hear from stylists and editors on how they can work with them. Next, we'll enjoy a fun cocktail lesson by I.W. Harper, then end the day with a zoom dinner hosted by Nike.
