Harlem’s Fashion Row was founded in 2007 to support emerging talent and provide a platform for underrepresented Black and Latinx designers. 

A total of 75 BIPOC designers from across the country are expected to attend the three-day event running until May 11. In line with its mission, the retreat aims to support emerging talent and underrepresented designers with access to stakeholders and information to shape their careers in the industry.

As part of the partnership, Nike will host the retreat at its New York Headquarters, where designers will get to meet and greet key industry executives and visit the executive offices of Nike, Louis Vuitton, JP Morgan, Macy's, and Saks. Furthermore, fashion insiders such as Amira Rasool and April Walker will share their experiences and strategies for success.

"We are grateful for Nike's continued partnership with this annual retreat. From day one, our mission has been to level the playing field in the fashion industry for underrepresented designers,” said CEO and founder of HFR, Brandice Daniels.

“In three days, they will learn things that only experience could teach them and access networking opportunities with individuals and businesses that would usually be out of their reach."
