Giving is IN Fashion​

We need your help to support programming in 2021.

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. It is our goal to have each program fully funded by the end of the first quarter of 2021.

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.

Imagine IFF Youth Fashion Camp

The Imagine IFF Youth Fashion Camp encompasses our mission to secure the future of fashion by introducing youth to the industry and teaching the economics of fashion. The two week program serves as a fashion industry simulation platform for students to highly engage and expedite their learning through real-world application. Upon completion, campers will have an understanding of the fashion industry and will be equipped with tools to empower them to take the next steps in pursuing the fashion career they aspire to.
