The Iconic launches First Nations fashion incubator program

Fashion platform The Iconic has launched The Iconic x FNFD Incubator Program for First Nations designers.

The collaboration is an extension of The Iconic’s long-term cooperation with FNFD (First Nations Fashion + Design), which combines the brand’s e-commerce experience and worldwide network as part of Global Fashion Group (GFG), with the insight and perspective FNFD provides from their community participation and industry impact.

The 2023 Incubator Program was created as a prototype to establish the tone for young creatives. Fashion designers, jewellery and accessory designers, graphic artists, and textile artists from various backgrounds and generations are eligible for the program.

“Interest in First Nations fashion has exploded in recent years, with designers like Nungala Creative and Clothing the Gaps piquing the interest of the mainstream with considered, sustainable and beautiful designs that pay respect to country and culture,” said Grace Lillian Lee, founder and CEO at FNFD. 

The Iconic says the collaboration is an important aspect of the brand’s Indigenous Engagement strategy, which was recently unveiled as part of The Iconic and GFG’s People & Planet Positive vision. The 2030 strategy offers five strategic pillars that are intended to achieve positive environmental and social transformation while also caring for its people.

Expressions of Interest for the co-designed Incubator Program are now being accepted until January 15 but may close early due to overwhelming demand. People can learn more via this website
