About Us

The Toronto Fashion Incubator (TFI) is the world’s first fashion incubator. We are an award-winning, non-profit organization that helps emerging fashion designers and entrepreneurs to become successful by helping them to understand the business of fashion. 

Did You Know?

Our community includes 83% women-led businesses, 22% BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and People of Colour) and 15% LGBTQ2S. We are a welcoming and inclusive organization that proudly offers programs and services to help equity-deserving entrepreneurs grow their business.

With support from the City of Toronto, TFI is instrumental in the creation of over 18,000 industry jobs in our hometown and across Canada.

Since our launch in 1987, major fashion meccas, including London, Paris, New York and Milan, have adopted TFI’s innovative co-sharing concept. There are now over 35 fashion incubators around the world, all of which are based on the TFI ground-breaking model.
