Giving is IN Fashion​

We need your help to support programming.

Indiana Fashion Foundation has created programs that serve the entire spectrum of the fashion industry in Indiana — from youth to fashion professionals working in the industry.

New Programs

IFF Emerging Designer Incubator

The IFF Emerging Designer Incubator sits at the intersection of DEI (Diversity, Equity & Inclusion) and educational advancement. It was developed to educate Indiana-based designers in the areas of business development, fashion design, and the evolving fashion industry structure. The goal is to equip participating designers with the tools necessary to build sustainable, market-ready fashion businesses. This program is an extension of our organizational mission of bridging the gap between fashion-focused initiatives and economic power to establish fashion as a viable industry in Indiana.

Entrepreneurs IN Fashion Cohort

The Entrepreneurs IN Fashion Cohort is a 3-day startup accelerator program built to equip non-design fashion entrepreneurs with next steps to increase their contribution to Indiana’s creative economy. Participants are given access to mentorship, training, networking opportunities, and early-stage funding. The 3-day training includes a series of workshops and one-on-one mentoring sessions with a diverse group of experts whose knowledge spans fashion, entrepreneurship, and Indiana-based resources.

Indiana Fashion Foundation is a public charity filed under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code making donations tax-deductible as charitable contributions for US federal income tax purposes.
