WRAY: Changing Savannah's fashion industry


ELVAINE, LLC is one of the BizLab companies being incubated at the Creators’ Foundry. ELVAINE’s founder, Elva Jiang, saw the difficulty faced by many female designers who create amazing work in their in-home studios but lack the resources and time to run a sustainable business featuring their own designs.

In most cases, these same designers are also saddled with full-time responsibilities managing households and raising small children. Therefore, Elva founded Eva Design House to empower designers with branding and marketing support, offering a whole spectrum of materials that complement their designs and help their businesses thrive.

Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) announced today that Yin “Elva” Han Jiang (B.F.A., fashion and fashion marketing and management) received one of only four $30,000 Geoffrey Beene National Scholarships for 2015 from the Young Menswear Association (YMA) Fashion Scholarship Fund. An additional eight students from SCAD each received $5,000 scholarships. Founded in 1937, the YMA is an international nonprofit organization composed of influential members in the fashion industry.

Presented during an awards gala held at the Waldorf Astoria New York, the scholarships are awarded to encourage gifted and enterprising young people to pursue careers in fashion design, merchandising, retailing and business so the fashion industry will continue to attract dedicated, capable and creative individuals. Since 1971, more than $8 million in scholarships has been awarded. The Geoffrey Beene Foundation has also donated more than $4.5 million to support the Fashion Scholarship Fund.
