My mentors have been there at different stages and points of my career providing guidance, constructive feedback, and challenging me to see the bigger picture ahead. Every time I got stuck, they were by my side to help me. I do not think I could have gotten through some of those roadblocks and challenges without their counsel. I am forever grateful to them,” Patel tells Vogue. “I have always believed in paying it forward and now, more than ever, it is important for us to share our knowledge and support Black designers and fashion brands.”

We made our website application, on www.raisefashionnow.org, a simple and straightforward business summary form, and then one of our intake committee members has an initial meeting to assess the brand’s greatest areas of need and opportunity. We then pair that brand with the advisors who have the most aligned skillset to their specific areas of focus. We also envision brands circling in and out of the network based on where they are in their lifecycle, and new hurdles that may come up down the line for them.” RAISE Fashion will also be working with recipients of Harlem’s Fashion Row’s ICON 360 Fund, supported by the CFDA and Vogue’s A Common Thread, offering mentorship to all recipients of the fund.
