Arcturis guided the St. Louis Fashion Fund through the programming, design, and
construction of the new St. Louis Fashion Incubator located in the historic garment
district on Washington Avenue in downtown St. Louis. Completed in early 2017, the
incubator is home to six upstart fashion brands.
The design provides each designer a generous private office in which to conduct
business and brand development. Large light-filled communal spaces are provided for design, production, collaboration, and learning. Flexibility and adaptability are core features of the design to allow the non-for-profit incubator to meet the evolving needs of the designers and community they support.
As a new anchor arts institution, the St. Louis Fashion Incubator adds to the growing vibrancy of downtown St. Louis, encouraging additional development in the area, and adding to the growing arts and culture of the city.
