NEW YORK — Fashion Row, an organization based out of Harlem has given six Black designers a shot at the opportunity of a lifetime — the runways of New York’s Fashion Week.
From 15 semifinalists, the [Fashion Row] team culled the top six, evaluating portfolios and interviewing designers in person. In the end, three will make it to the runway, backed by a marketing push and a network of fashion industry know-how — all for free.
“A lot of young designers aren’t able to fund a presentation which would introduce them to buyers and editors,” says Henderson, “so Harlem’s Fashion Row has become about giving them a platform they might not have otherwise.”
Voting is being held to decide who will make it to Fashion Week. Learn more about the designers and vote for your favorite three by May 30 at harlemsfashionrow.com
