IN THE BLACK
You will be notified of the In the Black Membership level you have been accepted to in the very near future. Again, the groups are categorized as senior, junior, and mentee. Upon notification of acceptance, you will be given next steps on how to access your community.
As a reminder, this is everything you will receive as an In the Black Member:
ONLINE DESIGNER COMMUNITY
With a vast network of experienced designers, you never have to feel alone or stuck again! Partake in weekly conversations with other designers to get feedback, share resources, and leverage relationships for your business. The membership is separated by 3 levels: SENIOR, JUNIOR, and MENTEE. This is done to ensure that designers are in groups with their peers. HFR will place each designer based on analysis of application.
MONTHLY DESIGNER CASE STUDIES
Each month junior or senior designers can apply to be a case study for what's not working in their business and will be given solutions by industry experts. One designer will be selected each month for a live conversation that will be shared with all the members.
MONTHLY FIRESIDE CHATS WITH INDUSTRY INSIDERS
We bring the best in the business directly to you every single month. As an In the Black member, you get unparalleled access to industry insiders, which includes asking questions about the issues you’re facing as a designer.
MONTHLY Q&As WITH FASHION & BUSINESS INSIDERS
An opportunity to ask your most pressing business, fashion, or design questions from industry experts.
