Harlem's Fashion Row is known to give designers of color a platform to showcase their talent and present their voice. But the growing pandemic across the globe has put everything on a standstill.
With an effort to help the crisis-struck, the panel is set to launch a non-profitharle, ICON 360 to help designers of color with financial aid in these difficult times.
"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.
