Mentoring

elaine gold launch pad
Thanks to a generous gift left behind by the foundation of Elaine Gold, a former board member and friend of the Accessories Council, we will be starting the Elaine Gold Launch Pad to help honor and continue Elaine’s legacy. This is a four year, accelerator program, in partnership with the CFDA.
The program is designed as a competition between designers & companies less than three years old. The winning company will receive funds to support their business and design endeavors.
