This morning, WWD announced the 12 designer tenants occupying CFDA's Fashion Incubator, a group of studios at 209 West 38th Street in New York's Garment District. Because of a $200,000 grant from the City of New York, renting the 800 to 1,000 square foot spaces will will only cost the chosen designers $1,500 to $2,000 per month. One of the of the hardest things about being a designer in New York is setting up shop. A studio that size in the neighborhood can typically cost upward of $10K, so this is a pretty big coup for the recipients. By the way, here's the list:

  • Alice Ritter
  • Bibhu Mohapatra
  • Prabal Gurung
  • Sophie Theallet (who also won the CFDA Vogue Fashion Fund last year)
  • Rachel Dooley with Gemma Redux
  • Grant Krajecki of Grey Ant
  • Waris Ahluwalia of House of Waris
  • Joel Diaz with Jolibe
  • Alison Lewis of Lewis
  • Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne of Public School
  • Yuvi Alpert and Danna Kobo of Ruby Kobo
  • Justin Giunta of Subversive Jewelry
