01 May 2019 Fox6 Now News

Partner Cynthia Rigsby was featured on the Fox6 Now segment “WakeUp” discussing the Milwaukee Fashion Initiative and its spring showcase.

“We created the MFI a year ago to bring together educators, manufacturers, designers and , retailers in Milwakee to really serve as a collective voice to promote these local businesses to grow the industry in Milwaukee,” Rigsby told Fox6 Now during her appearance.

Rigsby and partner Jan Pirozzolo-Mellowes founded The Milwaukee Fashion Initiative as a way to bring together local designers, educators, manufacturers, retailers, and others interested in supporting and growing the Milwaukee-area fashion industry for education, networking, and brainstorming — with the goal of highlighting the resources and talent already present in the Milwaukee area and helping initiative members work individually and collectively to identify opportunities to grow and expand that industry.
