On September 12, the CFDA hosted an Open House for the {FASHION INCUBATOR} designers, inviting the industry’s top retailers, editors, stylists, bloggers, and business community. The ten participating brands showed their Spring/Summer 2014 collections, all inspired by their recent adventures abroad thanks to our partner, W Hotels Worldwide. From Bangkok to Bali and St. Petersburg to Istanbul, the designers interwove their vivid sojourns into the seams of their collections.

And what Open House would be complete without a visit from two of the world’s top models? Amber Valletta, a member of the CFDA’s Sustainability Committee, and {INCUBATOR} champion Linda Evangelista both stopped by to support the designers.
