Aspiring and talented fashion designers in New York City and surrounding areas are benefiting from additional tools and business consulting resources supplied by Alvanon to the Brooklyn Fashion+Design Accelerator. The tools and resources were donated as part of Alvanon’s own initiative to help restore technical skills to New York City and other global fashion hubs, including Hong Kong and London.
The BF+DA is a hub for ethical fashion and design that provides designers with the resources they need to transform their ideas into successful businesses. It offers a Certificate in Design Entrepreneurship and houses a small-run factory equipped with the latest technology in garment production, 3D manufacturing and start to finish services ranging from pattern and grading to sampling.
As part of the collaboration, Alvanon, the Global Apparel Business Expert, has gifted AlvaForm fit mannequins and blocks to BF+DA’s vibrant manufacturing and training facilities, along with business expertise consisting of workshops and one-on-one tutoring sessions.
