Mayor Bloomberg's Fashion Incubator initiative is getting more interesting. The project was first announced in October with the idea that twelve designers were going to get cheap $1,500-a-month rents in a fancy building in the garment district for up to two years. And it gets better! Members of the CFDA are also going to provide mentoring to the dozen Chosen Ones. (How amazing would it be if Marc Jacobs or Diane Von Furstenberg just waltzed into work one day?!) The designers are expected to be announced this month. [FWD]
