Welcome to the Emerging Designer Community

WHY Should You Join Us?

This is where start-up BIPOC Fashion Designers, and more come together to learn & grow amongst peers. It's a safe space to learn what you didn't KNOW you didn't know, as you prepare to launch your very first collection, or scale and re-launch your existing Brand.

And since we’re talking about launching, do you mind if I get a little personal with you?! How are you actually doing on your goal to launch your clothing label? If you’ve been researching, implementing and STILL haven't gotten all of the tools and resources you need to launch your brand, you are in the right place. 

I'm a Trini-American mom, wife, sister, friend who has spent 30 yrs as a Designer & Consultant in the NY Fashion Industry. Has it been a cake-walk? Nottt exactly...this industry is the real deal. But there's no place like it! And when life happens, only true expertise and insider resources will keep you in the game. 

      Now, it is my sincere pleasure to enlighten start-up Fashion entrepreneurs like so you can understand the inner workings of the industry. That means you will be able to navigate the industry eco-system and move step by step through your collection Launch process, plus manage your business with clarity and confidence. It's your time. Let’s get to it!!!
