“Indiana Fashion Week helped me meet some incredible people and gave me numerous opportunities that I could not have found on my own! It definitely changed my life and I am certain it will change others’ as well!”
– Jenn Felts, Winner of INDFW19 Emerging Designer Competition

In a survey conducted by Indiana Fashion Foundation in 2021, 85.6% of respondents indicated that — if possible — they would be interested in pursuing fashion careers while living in Indiana.
It is our goal to incorporate diverse events and activations into the programming of Indiana Fashion Week to incubate the elements of a strong fashion industry, which include creativity, community, and commerce. These opportunities allow individuals to utilize their education and skills to fulfill fashion industry functions, which — when partnered with education & training — can create avenues for expanding or developing professional roles that will aid in growing Indiana’s fashion workforce.
