Fashion Manufacturing Initiative (FMI), a part of the Council of Fashion Designers of America Foundation (CFDA) will be the partner for the 2017 AAFA American Image Awards, which will be held in April 2017.

Established four years ago, FMI in partnership with the New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC), grants funds for advancements in manufacturing and training, design innovation, and production intelligence.

“This platform continues to expand, connects design and production for all apparel, footwear, and accessory products covered by AAFA and has already awarded more than $2 million in grants,” AAFA said.

“AAFA is deeply honoured to partner with the CFDA and support its Fashion Manufacturing Initiative as our 2017 American Image Awards grant partner,” said AAFA president and CEO, Rick Helfenbein.
