Indiana Fashion Foundation (IFF) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization designed to bridge the gap between fashion-focused initiatives and economic power.
We achieve this, in part, by connecting Indiana-based fashion professionals & organizations to resources that will aid in enhancing productivity and maximizing social & economic impact. We also achieve this by providing diverse programming that promotes entrepreneurship, community engagement, and fashion industry education. IFF also exists to aid in integrating fashion into Indiana’s culture & legacy, which will result in increased tourism as well as talent attraction and retention.
We value the rich — but often unsung — legacy of fashion in the state of Indiana. We intend to honor and expand this legacy by increasing the presence & impact of fashion within the state’s culture and economy.
We value the authentic identities and expressions of those who make up the diverse mix of Indiana’s fashion industry. We intend to maintain our own authenticity as an organization through our commitment to celebrate & advocate for diversity, equity, and inclusion.
We value consistent awareness of environmental, economic, and mental sustainability. We intend to foster a culture, maintain practices, and provide educational resources that promote sustainability in each of these three areas.
We value opportunities that foster individual and corporate success. We intend to utilize our resources to provide creative, educational, professional, and communal opportunities that will create forward progress for fashion professionals & organizations in Indiana.
We value continuous growth, be it major or minor. We intend to encourage organizational and individual growth by consistently engaging opportunities to mobilize the fashion industry in the state of Indiana.
