FROM THE SOFA
In response to the current Coronavirus pandemic sweeping the globe, Harlem’s Fashion Row has launched a new non-profit program, ICON 360, a grant that provides forgivable relief to designers of color who are pivoting theirbusinesses during this pandemic and need funding to scale.
In an effort to raise funds for designers of color, the influential arts and entertainment organization will host a ‘Virtual Fundraiser’ with special fashion industry guests, to celebrate and support designers who apply for the ICON 360 grant.
The current economic climate has brought forth uncertainty for designers. With the halt in productions and dramatic declines in sales, we at Harlem’s Fashion Row have decided to take action and assist designers of color through these unprecedented times.
Our mission is to dedicate 100% of ticket sales to the new non-profit, ICON 360, providing a safety net for designers of today and the future.
“During this crisis I thought it was critical to do everything in our power to support designers of
color. I’m incredibly inspired by the resilience of designers who are making bold pivots in their
business. 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.”
