Fashion Alliance Chicago
Fashion does not just happen on its own and certainly does not occur in a vacuum. From textile manufacturers, designers, buyers, shop owners and models, there are many people who work to create the clothes that you eventually see on the runway. It is like a well-oiled machine with each piece doing its part correctly to make it all work.
Fashion Alliance Chicago intends to knit all of the contributors to fashion together and launch Chicago as the Fashion Capitol of the Midwest. Chicago is the bridge between New York and Los Angeles. Located between the two fashion headquarters of the United States, Fashion Alliance Chicago would like to see that number increase to three. We see ourselves as a platform to connect the fashion industry. If we connect we can communicate and if we communicate we can create.
We seek to build the fashion industry in Chicago to a level that compares to New York, Los Angeles and even Paris. One way we will accomplish this is by advancing established talent in all areas related to the fashion industry. We also intend to support emerging designers, models, fabric manufactures and more so they too can be elevated to the national stage.
Fashion Alliance Chicago is the leading force behind making Chicago the Fashion capital of the Mid-West. That is Fashion with a capital F! We are focused on bringing together all aspects of the fashion industry to collaborate and launch Chicago onto the main stage of fashion. By working together on consulting strategy driven marketing to fashion relevant partnerships, together we can bring Fashion forward in Chicago.
Fashion Alliance Chicago seeks to accomplish our goals of being the premier fashion platform and making Chicago a Fashion Center by providing the following services:
• Promote and advance established talent relevant to the fashion industry.
• Promote and advance emerging talent relevant to the fashion industry
• Strategic marketing
• Product Placement
• Public relations and Promotion
Fashion Alliance Chicago collaborates with all facets of the fashion industry. Through our creative alliance we are able to popularize, promote and celebrate the creative and diverse culture in the fashion world. Together, we provide complete beginning to end services using all our resources within the industry to elevate your brand.
Fashion Alliance Chicago seeks to build Chicago into the fashion capital of the Midwest, with uniting all fashion industries into “One Chicago” using the following:
There is power in numbers. When we work together as one voice we have more power. By advocating for ourselves and each other we can better speak and act as an industry. Unlike individual companies when we are truly an alliance, we advocate for resource development. Our advocacy efforts will be focused on projects and initiatives that benefit our fashion brands, as well as the robust group of individuals and companies that support our fashion industry.
Our goal is to create jobs and measurable economic impact while ensuring the continued growth of the industry in our area. It is a delicately interrelated ecosystem. Growth means jobs. Jobs means production, production means sales, sales means profit. Our vision is to not only nurture this eco-system for members of our fashion industry who call Chicago home, but to also make our area more attractive to other fashion companies who are considering new business locations.
We strongly believe we can create and maintain many fashion industry resources more efficiently and effectively as a collective than individual companies can on their own. Our partnership with the City of Chicago, Catholic Charities of Illinois is just one example of this theory. Through our partnership a Sewing Training Academy was created to train underserved and underemployed populations to fill the gap of a badly needed skilled workforce.
By taking advantage of the training and development opportunities we offer on a regular basis, participants will be able to build and expand their knowledge base on sophisticated business skills and management issues to help grow your business to the next level.
Fashion Alliance of Chicago realizes how important mentorship is in our industry. Partnering with us ensures qualified mentors will be available to teach and guide you through the ins and outs of the fashion industry. Fashion is constantly changing so the need to learn never stops.
