Philadelphia Fashion Incubator 2018 Residency

Philadelphia Fashion Incubator 2018 Residency

This Deadline Expired: Thursday, January 4, 2018

The Philadelphia Fashion Incubator at Macy’s Center City is currently accepting applications from emerging designers for the 2018 residency.

The Philadelphia Fashion Incubator (PFI) at Macy’s Center City provides six (6) emerging Philadelphia-based apparel and/or accessories designers with the resources – including workspace, curriculum, and mentoring – to launch and grow their fashion businesses.

Throughout the course of one year, the Designers-in-Residence (DIR) will be required to attend and complete a mandatory core curriculum of workshops and seminars focused on business development. Conducted at both PFI as well as at off-site locations, these workshops are essential to the PFI program and attendance is mandatory. At the time of acceptance, a calendar with proposed monthly workshop dates for the year will be provided. These dates are subject to change, and the DIR’s need to adjust their schedules accordingly.

The DIR’s will be provided with office space, including a workshop room with sample production space, as well as a shared conference room/showroom space. DIR’s will receive mentoring from Philadelphia-based industry leaders and feedback from Macy’s at Center City merchant team along with a number of press, sales and event opportunities.

The Philadelphia Fashion Incubator will support talent that understands the program is a business proposition, not merely a creative opportunity.
The Incubator program will begin March 1, 2018. The Designers-in-Residence (DIR) are expected to complete the full year and are limited to their one-year term in residence. After the year, alumnae are encouraged to stay connected through various programs and events.
