FISF workshop in March 2012

Sep '11
Fashion Incubator San Francisco at Macy's Union Square (FISF) is calling all aspiring fashion apparel designers in the Bay Area to apply for six open spots in its 2012 Designers in Residence program.

Each year FISF will provide six Designers in Residence with premier workshop space in Macy's offices at Union Square where they can create new lines and showcase their collections to merchants, ranging from local boutiques to national retailers.

The Designers in Residence program includes a curriculum taught by experts in the San Francisco fashion and economic development communities. Topics will range from business planning, brand marketing and image creation to line costing and design critiques.

The first class of designers will take residence at the FISF workshop in March 2012 for their yearlong training. The application deadline is November 14, 2011 at 5 p.m. Pacific.

“There's no limit to what can be achieved when the power of mentorship and skilled guidance is applied to individuals who have a passion to create and succeed,” said Brown. “The next Karl Lagerfeld or Vera Wang may very well be future graduates of the Designers in Residence program at Fashion Incubator San Francisco.”

Diane Green, fashion department chair at City College of San Francisco, and Amy Williams, fashion design chair at California College of the Arts, are creating the Designers in Residence curriculum and will be on hand at the Macy's Fashion's Night Out event for questions about the program.

FISF is a non-profit business development organization that will nurture and mentor the City's fashion design talent and provide them the tools and resources needed to establish and grow businesses of their own. Macy's at Union Square initiated the FISF, established its 501c3 status and will house the incubator at its Union Square offices, including all needed supplies and machinery, storage for materials and samples, merchant showroom space and a classroom.

FISF is a non-profit incubator committed to turning fashion apparel designers into successful San Francisco entrepreneurs and employers. Each year FISF will provide six Designers in Residence with premiere workshop space at Macy's offices in downtown San Francisco and will offer yearlong business operations training from experts in the San Francisco fashion and economic development communities.
