The SYKY Collective, is the first luxury incubator designed for digital fashion houses. The company believes that the next great luxury houses are designing for digital worlds today. These designers are not bound by geography or traditional fashion industry norms, and they are building the future of fashion right now.
The entire SYKY Collective team believes that this future is decentralized, and that exceptional talent should be given equal access opportunities. “As someone who has dedicated their career to the fashion industry, I cannot express how meaningful it is to see SYKY taking the initiative to create opportunities for a new generation of digital designers,” said Founder & CEO, Alice Delahunt in a Linkedin statement.
“At SYKY, we believe that the next great luxury houses are designing for digital worlds today. These designers are digital, global, and building the future of fashion. To accelerate this future, we’re forming The SYKY Collective: a cohort of 10 talented digital designers that we believe will revolutionize the industry,” the company said in a statement.
“Through our year long incubator program, we will provide resources, education, mentorship, and opportunities to help digital designers accelerate their businesses into the next great fashion houses.”
The Collective’s team of mentors are leaders in their respective industries, intentionally selected to bridge the worlds of fashion, Web3, digital design, and culture:
▫️ British Fashion Council
▫️ Jonathan Bottomley CMO of Calvin Klein
▫️ Mark Guiducci Editorial Director of Vogue
▫️ Matthew Ball Best-selling Author, Entrepreneur & Advisor
▫️ Sabine Le Marchand Creative Director at Frosty
▫️ Megan Kaspar Co-Founder and Managing Director of FirstLight and Founding member of Red DAO
The team will serve as key partners to rising digital designers, guiding them through complex decisions and making valuable industry connections. More mentors are anticipated to be announced soon.
