Our Mission

Brocade's mission is to lead in the advancement of black fashion designers in fashion. Our future studio is an creative co-working sanctuary for independent designers who lack the fashion development resources to obtain leading roles in the fashion industry. We will provide sewing machines, cutting tables, and other necessities for fashion designers to create full collection.
