BOSTON — Incubator sites are all over Boston and Cambridge, where entrepreneurs are hoping the next big high-tech idea could take off.
In East Boston, there’s a different spin on that concept. It’s a facility where budding fashion designers can get some help taking their dreams to the runways.
Donielle McKeever is the founder and CEO of Thread Tech, an incubator where attendees can learn the ins and outs of the fashion world.
“Thread Tech is a one-stop-shop for fashion designers," McKeever explained. "Designers can come in with just an idea or a concept and we’ll work with them all the way through product development.”
Joanne DiCamillo has been coming to Thread Tech as she and a friend launch “Be Free”, a clothing line featuring garments for people who are mobility impaired.
“We needed a lot of services," DiCamillo said. "We needed design consultation, pattern making, tech packs, things that are still kind of foreign to us.”
