  • We will provide 1 to 1 reviews offering direction, guidance and support until the final step, which is putting a strong collection in front of top buyers from around the world.
  • We provide equal opportunity to all our guest designers therefore we do not promote individuals in their designs, but we do promote everyone in the team trough interviews and diverse social media outlets.
  • We want our guest designers to show own personality and style in their work and we will focus in each designer strengths all aligned to a visual unity.
  • We will select a small team to work with, this will increase selling opportunities per designer.
