Amidst the hustle of New York Fashion Week (NYFW), The Standard and RAISEfashion united in the vibrant heart of the Meatpacking District. This powerful partnership brings together fashion industry leaders on a mission to champion BIPOC talent and drive equity. By transforming one of the hotel’s beautiful floor to ceiling window spaces on the Highline, attendees bore witness to a spectacular showcase featuring 20 budding designers unveiling their Spring 2024 collections.
In addition to igniting connections within the fashion community, a retail pop-up downstairs at The Standard Shop offered a unique opportunity to own pieces that tell compelling stories. This collaboration signifies an unwavering commitment to diversity, creativity, and inclusivity.
“For us, this fashion week was about access for communities and designers of color. They need to have their product seen during such a pivotal moment, during New York Fashion Week. Partnering with Amber Asher and The Standard hotel was an opportunity to utilize one of the hottest spaces in New York.” - Felita Harries, Executive Director of RAISEfashion.
Congratulations to all of the talented designers who showcased their work at NYFW!
