Kickstart Art: 3 Fashion Crowdfunding Campaigns To Support Now
In the last few years Kickstarter has become an excellent platform to help launch baby businesses, give creative gifts to friends and nurture dreams. We’re happy to see that forward-thinking fashion designers have jumped on board to seek funding for fledgling fashion houses on the verge of becoming major labels. Below, we’ve compiled a list of our favorite fashion campaigns in need of funding now.
16 Days To Go!
Project Design winners in 2013, Angela Brugioni and Kristen Carsrud have been hard at work on their contemporary, ready-to-wear line, MiiTA COLLECTION since 2012. Now based in NYC, their Kickstarter campaign will fund a line of basics designed to be staples in a trend-setter’s wardrobe and a line of novelty items made to demonstrate the importance of versatility in a modern wardrobe. This project will also help them launch their line on a national scale! They have 16 days to reach their $10,000 goal.
Harbison: The Classic Collection
24 Days To Go!
When Harbison walked the runways of 2013 Spring Saint Louis Spring Fashion Week, the bold bright looks wowed the fashion-forward front row crowd and beyond. The American sportswear brand hopes to launch an ecommerice site with the funding and is giving donors exclusive access to order their Fall 2014 collection. They have 24 days to reach their $150,000 goal.
