“Our best ideas come from the ground up and from grassroots efforts,” Kolb told Women’s Wear Dailyof CFDA member Simon Alcantara's idea. “We reached out to designers who could benefit from the exposure.”

Designers like Alcantara, Angela Cummings, Danielle and Jodie Snyder of Dannijo, Dean Harris, Gerard Yosca, Kara Ross, Steven Lagos, Lisa Jenks, Loree Rodkin, Lisa Salzer of Lulu Frost, Michael Spirito, Mimi So, Mish Tworkowski of Mish, Nak Armstrong, Nicholas Varney of Nicholas Varney Jewels, Stephen Dweck, Rachel Dooley of Gemma Redux, Ron Anderson and David Rees of Ten Thousand Things ,and Cheryl Finnegan of Virgins Saints and Angels will feature their work during the CFDA’s first showcase at the organization's headquarters on Bleeker Street in New York City.

“Our hope is to attract people who are interested in fashion, whether it’s retailers, fashion people, press of the business community,” Kolb said.
