We are here to help guide and support any aspiring designer looking to establish or conduct business in the United States of America. We empower, educate and help designers connect the dots and form the bigger picture.
While both organizations may share a few common starting points, we at CAAFD are tasked with filling a void in the fashion industry, to help designers of all levels but with focus on the emerging designers who aspire to do business regardless of their country of origin. Our main objective is to nest, nurture and develop brands to reach their full potential through exposure to various opportunities and resources available. We are, however, not here to compete with CFDA but rather to complement the great work they have done in paving the way for some of the greatest designers out there since. We have an open door policy and are able to help guide individuals from a student designer to an established designer in as many ways possible.
