”The FIT Design Entrepreneurs Collaborative has meant a lifeline for my business. It has provided me with the opportunity to have an office to operate my business and an available showroom in the center of the New York’s Garment District, where I can meet buyers from all over the country who come to market, all at an affordable cost. It is a gift and a blessing.
It is also great to have the support of the Collaborative Board and the FIT resources that are made available to us and able to work within a creative, community of fellow designers.”
