In exciting news today, Banana Republic and the CFDA announced a new partnership to support emerging designers who produce and design their collections in their respective local cities. For the first collab, Banana Republic joined forces with NYC-based line Timo Weiland for spring 2016.
The line will debut during New York Fashion Week this month and hit stores next March. “We are proud to partner with the CFDA and its network of emerging designers and manufacturers,” said Marissa Webb, creative director of Banana Republic. “This new program is a great opportunity to provide mentorship and resources to help creative talent grow their business while designing and producing locally.”
