NOT JUST A LABEL & JOOR Announce The 100 Project for Emerging Designers
JOOR, the world’s industry-standard wholesale management platform for fashion, and Not Just A Label (NJAL), the world’s leading designer platform for showcasing and nurturing today’s emerging design pioneers are pleased to announce The 100 Project. With over 42,000 emerging designers on NJAL, the competition will identify 100 outstanding designers to get exclusive access to showcase their Autumn/Winter 2020 collection to hundreds of buyers using the JOOR platform.
Kristin Savilia, CEO of JOOR, said, “JOOR is committed to creating opportunities for brands of all sizes to advance and grow. The 100 Project aligns perfectly with our mission to fuel digital transformation and surface what’s next in fashion. We’re excited to partner with Not Just a Label on this initiative that will foster creativity and diversity in our industry.”
With the support of fashion’s most powerful technology platforms, The 100 Project will provide designers with the opportunity for exposure and a seamless introduction to JOOR’s 28+ exclusive retail buyers. An interaction that can take months or years for designers to secure in some cases.
Stefan Siegel, Founder and CEO of NJAL said, “NJAL’s goal is to further disrupt the industry by allowing creative talent to flourish regardless of their geographical location. Customers demand individuality, an ethical approach to fashion design and a way to stand out from the masses—by partnering with JOOR we can tap into a fragmented wholesale market and provide a transparent, safe, and exciting trading platform for both brands and retailers.”
