Tommy Hilfiger Fashion Frontier Challenge 2022 is inviting fashion entrepreneurs interested in working to make positive changes in the fashion industry. The challenge is up for the third edition of the Tommy Hilfiger Fashion Frontier Challenge.
The challenge is set to create exquisite fashion entrepreneurs that are more inclusive. Stitch by stitch, person by person, innovation by innovation determined to push boundaries.
The Tommy Hilfiger Fashion Frontier Challenge, launched in 2018, is built to help the best ideas and it’s also an annual program set to discover and accelerate the work of the world’s most innovative and impactful fashion startups through mentoring and financial support.
Building on Tommy Hilfiger’s sustainability vision to Waste Nothing and Welcome All, this year’s program strives to amplify and support black, indigenous and people of color (BIPOC) entrepreneurs who are working to advance their communities and foster a more inclusive future of fashion.
