Winnipeg Fashion Incubator is now a Co-op!!


Over the last year the Winnipeg Fashion Incubator took a hiatus to regroup. In that time, we undertook the process of incorporating as a community service co-op. We decided on this type of incorporation, instead of a regular non-profit, to underscore the community linkages necessary for Winnipeg’s fashion design and ancilliary industries to thrive. This is a city that does things together.

The current board is composed of Alex Expinosa, Allan Kiesler, Julie Land, Diana Miller and Zanna Joyce.

Our next steps are to get our website up and running, and to bring interested people together to set a few goals for activities. We are setting more possible targets and we look forward to connecting with you!

Directory with images and weblinks

UPDATE:  The directory is ready for you to post your own listings!  After you have entered the data, you can submit it.  It won’t be live until we’ve approved it.

You can enter your listing here:


We worked on the website all afternoon, and have coded a directory so that designers and other industry professionals can be featured with images, weblinks, and other contact details.  This directory will enable searching, too, so when you submit your work, be sure to suggest categories that it fits into!

We’re keeping the directory under wraps for a few days, until we have some content, so please connect with us to add yours so we can get it up and running.

For the time being listings will be free as we work out the kinks.  Then, non-members will have a basic listing, while members will have more detail.
