Our extended family of industry supporters

When Colin McDowell first created Fashion Fringe, he reached out to a renowned list of colleagues and associates who all agreed to support him in his venture to help find, promote and sustain new cutting edge design talent. While not taking in an active role in Fashion Fringe, these individuals have all supported Colin’s cause.
