NEW YORK, Sept. 9, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- As an arts and fashion touchstone returns to the runway this week, the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) and CLEAR have partnered to help create a safer return of New York's Fashion Week by donating free access to CLEAR's Health Pass to all CFDA designers for use in their shows. CLEAR's digital vaccine solutions makes it easy and simple to show proof of vaccination - helping streamline entry requirements and allow designers to focus on their shows while also creating a safer environment for models, buyers, reporters, and the broader community.
This donation is part of CLEAR's "Come Back Better" initiative to help businesses and organizations of all sizes safely stay open. CLEAR's Health Pass is a free, mobile experience on the CLEAR app, which securely connects a person's verified identity to proof of vaccination. This week, more than 20 designers are planning on using Health Pass for their shows, including:

"New York Fashion Week and the CFDA aren't just cultural cornerstones but also generate hundreds of millions in economic impact for our city," said Caryn Seidman-Becker, CLEAR CEO. "As a New Yorker and fashion lover, I'm proud to partner with the CFDA to help safely bring back this important event to our community."
"Bringing New York Fashion Week back this year is incredibly meaningful for our designers, models and the fashion industry at-large," said Steven Kolb, CEO, Council of Fashion Designers of America. "Last year we launched an innovative digital platform, as a means for our designers to showcase their work and designs from home. This year, now that we are able to connect in-person once again, we are elated to partner with CLEAR and continue to put the health of our industry first while bringing back one of New York's most iconic events."
More than 130 organizations across the country have used CLEAR's digital vaccine solutions to create safer environments, corporate offices, teams across all professional sports leagues, major venues, festivals, and travel destinations like Hawaii.
