Proceeds from the New/NEXT Showcase support two DCFF programs: The DC Fashion Incubator (DCFI) @ Macy’s Metro Center and the DCFI Public Program, Made in the District. These programs develop and train the world’s next fashion business owners and help job creators in the areas of fashion, style, merchandising, and related technology, right here in the nation’s capital. The exact initiatives that DCFF intends proceeds to support include expanding the DCFI Designers-in-Residence from five to seven designers, securing manufacturing technology (specifically embroidery machinery), creating an internship program for local university and trade school students, developing additional fundraising events and outreach efforts, and expanding DCFI marketing.
