The New York Fashion & Retail Association (NYFRA): Founded in April 2011 by José P. Chan, a Director at Roberto Cavalli and Professor at Parsons The New School for Design, NYFRA serves as an innovative forum for young professionals associated with fashion design and the business of fashion. In order to explore trends, opportunities and challenges that face the fashion industry, NYFRA features leading industry executives as guest speakers at its events, which are organized in collaboration with the F.I.T. Global Fashion Management.

In addition, it provides an engaging, supportive environment for its members to discuss issues relevant to their careers. The Association was created because there is a need for our industry to build a community in Manhattan.
