Andi Eaton’s Southern Coalition of Fashion & Design is a networking and resource organization open to those in the apparel design community in the south, as well as those connected to it. The mission is to create fashion shows that are highly designer focused, as well as market and educational opportunities throughout the year.
With regional fashion week’s popping up all over the country, SCFD is launching a newly branded event “Southern Design Week” – the goal of this new brand is to create hyper-focus on designers and set this event apart from the standard regional fashion week’s that include retail fashion shows as a key component. The end goal is to support southern makers and the design community in growing sustainable roots.
Designers interested in showing your SS2015 collection should email firstname.lastname@example.org for an application and details.
