God knows that my hometown of St. Louis could benefit from good news, particularly after Ferguson and STL’s unsavory reputation for murder (read this horrific story).
Now the good news:
The Saint Louis Fashion Incubator (SLFI) is accepting applications for its inaugural class through July 14, 2016. It is backed by the Saint Louis Fashion Fund and Washington University in St. Louis’s Olin Business School. The two-year program will provide financial support, educational opportunities, and free workspace to its 6 chosen designers.
Industry leaders will select a group of six designers to participate in the two-year Midwestern accelerator program.
