As part of our coverage of NYFW, we here at TFG are especially excited to feature the work of emerging designers and highlight the talent that the CFDA has selected to be a part of its Incubator program. As noted in a previous post, the CFDA's Incubator program was launched in 2009 in partnership with New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) and Newmark Holdings to support the next generation of fashion designers in New York City. The program has helped catapult the careers of Prabal Gurung, Cushnie et Ochs, and Joseph Altuzarra, all graduates of the Incubator. It has also fostered the development of handbag, accessories, and jewelry designers, such as Gemma Redux.
