“TFI’s Fashion Your Future Program was an essential part to the growth of Gemine Design. The opportunity it provides for young entrepreneurs to receive mentorship, knowledge and guidance was such a rewarding experience.”

Michelle Good, Gemine Design

“I truly appreciate everything that TFI has done for me and other entrepreneurs this year. Before I came to Fashion Your Future, my boss told me that if I attended bootcamp she would have to dismiss me because my hours would be impossible to keep. It was scary for me to leave my job, but I thought about it and and took a leap of faith. I haven’t once regretted it. Even after graduating from college for fashion design, I still learned so much from Fashion Your Future bootcamp. It was mindblowing at times!”

Diana Gruning, Von Gruning

“I really want to thank @tfi_fashionincubator and @susanattfi for selecting me as one of the Top 5 Emerging Canadian Designers for the FashionYourFuture program. I have received amazing feedback following the Press and Buyers show… and this is only the beginning!”

Donisha Young, BlackGold

“So this summer I randomly came across @tfi_fashionincubator’s Fashion Your Future entrepreneurship program, started my own business, and somehow ended up as one of the finalists 🙊😱😬 Thank you to @susanattfi, the team at TFI, the Province of Ontario and the City of Toronto for putting together such an amazing program that has given me a platform beyond my expectations #TFIFYF #fashionyourfuture”
