"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," Brandice Daniel, founder and CEO of Harlem's Fashion Row explained in a statement. 

The panel is set to host a fundraiser on May 30 to kickstart these efforts, with 100% of profits from ticket sales going directly into ICON 360. The virtual event is set to feature prominent editors, influencers, stylists and other industry folks.
