Let’s face it, 2020 has been an experience! Sadly the fashion industry has been hit the hardest by all of the uncertainty. While we’ve experienced a few bumps in the road this year, we’re still going strong because we took our time and focused on quality while building our brand on a solid foundation. And now…#TheNextLevelIsHere. Building on our success, while factoring in the feedback of our community over the past year, we are proud to introduce the House of (DE-FI)ance: A Fashion & Design Co-working Experience.
Since our launch in 2013, (DE-FI) has always focused on the industry as a whole. We’ve assisted with garment production, Business of Fashion workshops, Runway Experience production, editorials and so much more. We expanded our services over the past 2 years and assigned branded names to each with services exclusive only to (DE-FI) talent. Now, we’re ready to to bring it all to fashion and design talent from across the nation with direct outreach to Dayton and the Midwest talent.
The House of (DE-FI)ance: A Fashion & Design Co-working Experiences revises and broadens our mission by developing new and consistent programming that reflects our next stage for growth and service to the local and regional design and creative communities.
By strengthening our Garment District and revitalizing our retail and manufacturing communities, the House of (DE-FI)ance brings the entire fashion and design industry under one roof, while growing Dayton and the Midwest’s impact and influence. The House of (DE-FI)ance serves as a fashion and design retail and educational hub for the fashion and design community, as well as a catalyst for attracting full-scale garment manufacturing and production to throughout the Dayton and Miami Valley areas
