Grants of up to $80,000 to USA fashion manufacturers to participate in a virtual residency of education and mentorship to strengthen businesses and encourage ethical and innovative practices. Funding may cover programs to invest in new technologies and encourage sustainability.

The CFDA + LEXUS FASHION* INITIATIVE is designed to inspire commitment to transformative leadership, sustainable innovation, and positive change.

Structured as a virtual residency, the initiative provides education and mentorship. The primary goal of the initiative is to facilitate steps to measurable progress thereby furthering American fashion’s journey to sustainability.

Participants will learn how to navigate fashion’s complex supply chain and make informed, strategic design and business decisions using a triple bottom line approach- i.e valuing people, planet, and profit holistically. Fashion’s environmental, social and financial impacts, are examined alongside potential for problem-solving through new materials, processes and systems. With support, mentorship participants will target aspects of their design and business strategies to define actionable goals in areas such as consumer consciousness, bespoke product and service innovations, and ethical methods.

Generously underwritten by Lexus, Fashion* Initiative participants are eligible for milestone awards totaling $80,000 to advance tangible goals. At the conclusion, June 2019, the brand with the most visionary, viable and impactful strategic blueprint for a positive future will be awarded a Lexus Grant of $100,000.
