About Us

Indiana Fashion Foundation (IFF) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) IFF's mission is to bridge the gap between community initiatives and resources using fashion as a vehicle for social impact and economic development.

We achieve this by fostering connections among Indiana-based students, entrepreneurs, and organizations, encouraging collaboration on shared goals through events and projects.

For students, this collaboration offers valuable on-the-job experience in the fashion industry while contributing to meaningful initiatives, enhancing their professional development.

Entrepreneurs benefit by engaging directly with their target market, showcasing their products or services, and building relationships with potential customers for business growth and success.

Working with IFF enables organizations to achieve their mission more effectively by tapping into the creativity and talent of students and entrepreneurs to address community needs and drive social change.

In summary, IFF’s focus on fostering collaborations creates a synergistic environment, leading to a stronger and more vibrant creative economy.
