At the intersection of fashion and technology, The Fashion Zone is an interdisciplinary incubator that provides growth and funding opportunities that ignite and inspire fashion innovation in Canada.

Located at the downtown core by Yonge-Dundas Square, Fashion Zone is fully equipped with a roster of over 40 industry advisors and facilities to help our entrepreneurs grow.

The Fashion Zone empowers 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 them, 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, they believe they can enable it.

As Canada's fastest-growing incubator for fashion-inspired businesses, the Fashion Zone supports those who are committed to pushing the boundaries of their own ventures and the industry. From ideation to commercialization, the Fashion Zone supports the next generation of fashion innovation.

Members of the Fashion Zone learn a multitude of transferable skills that encourages interdisciplinary collaboration:

Fashion Studies

The Creative School Centre for Fashion & Systemic Change (CFSC) supports research and knowledge exchange that cultivates inclusion, decolonization, and sustainability in the field of Fashion Studies and the fashion system more broadly.

Our work centres fat, disabled, trans, gender non-conforming, Indigenous, Black, racialized and/or other bodies that have been marginalized in and by fashion. Our projects use participatory and decolonizing methodologies to centre the experiences and ideal futures of these wearers and makers and to redesign the field of fashion for and with them.

Through research and events, our goal is to open up conversations about systemic injustices in fashion and foster collaborations between academics, designers, entrepreneurs and justice-seeking communities to shift misrepresentations and redistribute power.
