Chicago Fashion Incubator at Macy’s on State Street

The Chicago Fashion Incubator (CFI) at Macy’s on State Street provides six emerging Chicago-based designers in residence with the resources, business acumen and mentoring to launch their careers in fashion.

Designer in Residence Applications for 2019-2020 are due January 15, 2019. 

Building on Chicago’s long manufacturing heritage (two of the country’s most prominent menswear brands started in the city, and still make their garments here) and the city?s internationally acclaimed design schools, the idea was to have a place that used the resources and opportunities available in Chicago to help aspiring local fashion designers build sustainable businesses that can compete in the global fashion industry.  
In 2008, the Chicago Fashion Incubator was born.

Its mission is to make meaningful economic impact in Chicago by giving fashion designers technical product development and business tools and training to create innovative products and launch globally competitive businesses based in Chicago.

Since inception in 2008, the CFI has proudly supported 43 designers-in-residence and hundreds more fashion designers working in Chicago?s creative and business communities.
