Applications to join the Fashion Zone this summer are open April 5, 2022 to May 8, 2022. Toronto Metropolitan University students can apply any time! Stay tuned on our social media for updates.

At the Fashion Zone, we empower creators who are redefining fashion; entrepreneurs and innovators who seek to create experiences that move people to feel something different, something fresh, something new. Because to us, fashion goes far beyond clothing – it extends into product, technology, design and retail. And while no one can be certain what the next wave of innovation will be, we believe we can enable it.

As Canada's fastest growing incubator for fashion-inspired businesses, we support those who are committed to pushing the boundaries of their own ventures and the industry. From ideation to commercialization, we offer 3 membership options:
