To evolve the Pittsburgh fashion industry; supporting the growth of existing fashion professionals, while educating the next generation.
IN THE COMMUNITY
As part of our mission to support emerging talent, we partner with educational institutions and organizations to provide workshops, mentorship and developmental resources to the community.
Style412 continues a partnership with Lunar Gala to facilitate workshops and design critiques for emerging student designers from Carnegie Mellon University. The purpose of the design critiques are to connect existing professionals with student designers and provide a purposeful and quality feedback session in advance of the annual runway show.
As a collaborative opportunity to increase the technical knowledge and creative capacity of aspiring makers in the regional area, Style412 will host monthly sewing workshops at the Chatham Center for Women’s Entrepreneurship Prototyping & Design Lab beginning this Spring.
