The Fashion Industries Favorite Business Network ...

FII names it's "Designers to Watch, Spring 2009"

In early January, the Fashion Industry Insiders held a casting call to review the work of various member designers and the turn out was outstanding! Designers were critiqued on quality, design, being on-trend, and wearability. While castings were being held, FII members had the chance to network among themselves, exchanging ideas and admiring each others' work.

The designers chosen from this casting are the official "FII Designers To Watch." As part of a new FII initiative, twice a year (Spring and Fall), member designers will be chosen to participate in this elite group, leading up to the year-end "FII Designer of the Year." The two groups of designers will have the opportunity to participate in an FII-produced fashion show at a local venue, presenting specific pieces of their lines to their peers, buyers, media and clients. Our goal is to provide a platform for our designers to launch a full-scale business. This initial platform will offer exposure and open doors to magazine editorials, new industry contacts, purchase orders and the ability to grow to the next step of their career. The designer who best takes advantage of these opportunities and continues to grow as a designer, as well as in their business, will have the potential to become the "FII Designer of the Year." This title is given to the member who best exemplifies quality artistry with a mix of business saavy.
