For designers, New York Fashion Week is all about exposure — and no one needs that more than emerging ones.
With that in mind, The Standard and Raisefashion have teamed up to showcase Black, Indigenous and people of color brands’ spring 2024 collections and unveil a pop-up at The Shop at The Standard, High Line. Twenty emerging designers tied to Raisefashion’s Brand Fellowship Program will benefit from the union, which is designed to continue advancing equity and opportunity. All of this is in sync with the nonprofit’s mission to mentor, provide resources and create access.
