NEW FASHION PROGRAM FOR BUDDING ACCESSORY DESIGNERS

Youth aged 20 - 29 will want to check out TFI's Fashion Your Future program re-launching this summer for the 3rd consecutive year. Funded by the Government of Ontario as part of the Youth Jobs Strategy, and supported by the City of Toronto, this FREE, three-phase initiative for aspiring accessory designers begins with an 18-day boot camp that puts individuals through a comprehensive course on developing a fashion business. Participants will learn about developing a cohesive fashion line, pricing, sourcing, business planning, trade show prep and critical thinking.

Ten top achieving participants from phase one will move onto phase two where they'll develop and produce a spring 2018 sample accessory collection using mentor guidance, mentor resources and micro-financing. In the final phase of the program, the three top achieving youth from phase two will have access to additional funding for producing product orders and will participate in the Toronto Fashion Incubator’s Press & Buyers Trade Show in Toronto. The program is expected to engage 60 youth, create 10 new small businesses and 10 new jobs.
