Yeah, we know...we do a lot! To help you navigate our vast website and our work, we've created this Quick Navigation page just for you! Just read the description and click on the pink link and it will taking straight to that page.
This page is dedicated to aspiring and emerging Fashion Designers and shares details on the tools needed that (DE-FI) offers to help you to accomplish your goals as a fashion professional.
This page will help models navigate the sometime murky waters of the modeling industry. Learn about our Model Talks, Safety Tips, and the Do's and Don'ts of how to become a professional mod
Here you will learn about the strides that (DE-FI) has made over the past 5+ years that have made us one of the most influential fashion organizations in the country. You will also learn about our subsidiaries The Gem City Sewing Company, Dayton Garment & Textile District, Dayton Threads, Dayton Design Week, and Dayton Fashion Week .
This is where the fruits of our labor come to life! At the conclusion of the professional development modules for both designers and models they will take what they learned and produce their own tear-sheet quality photo-shoots. Beginning in 2019 (DE-FI)ance Magazine is also accepting submissions from non- (DE-FI) related talent.
(DE-FI) is 100% volunteer led and run; we would not have been able to accomplish any of our work without our Sponsors and Partners! Check them out on this page as well as learn how you can pitch in.
We coined it first and inspired others to follow. While other experiences have popped up, we're like a bottle of Coke..."you can't beat the real thing".

Be sure to also check out In The Community, Agency Visits and NYFW, and Fashion Experience Cont.
