NEW YORK — Forward, a Lower East Side "incubator space" at 72 Orchard Street nurturing emerging fashion talent, has selected its second round of designers to showcase at the shop.
The six designers will retail their fall lines and be groomed in how to run a business, with the goal of eventually opening their own stores on the Lower East Side. They were selected by the Lower East Side Business Improvement District, which founded and subsidizes Forward, and the Style Council, a group of writers, editors and fashion experts. Over 50 designers had presented collections for consideration.
