The Headlining Fashion Experience Inspired by NYFW: The Show

Meet The Headlining Designers

The Dayton Emerging Fashion Incubator (DE-FI) LLC is honored to welcome Design Houses The Randy Gary Collection, MJOCHELE, Coral Marie, Anastasi Fashion, Mob Clothing, and Emma Fry as the Headlining Designers for #TheReboot of Dayton Fashion Week.   


Having 6 seasons of experience working behind the the scenes with the Council of Fashion Designers of America,  for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.,  Dayton Fashion Week is open to other producers to host their own #FashionExperience March 18-21, 2020.   Unlike other regional Fashion Weeks, the Headlining event will be produced by (DE-FI),  mirroring that of New York Fashion Week where each invited Fashion Designer will have the runway, audience, and venue to  themselves for at least an hour. Meaning, unlike other regional fashion events, there will not be another designer showing 10 minutes  after you. 


The Headlining Fashion Designers will have the opportunity to:


  1. Mix and mingle with your guest
  2. Build a rapport
  3. Take  orders
  4. Transfer to the Fashion Village
  5. Have an  opportunity to make a profit from ticket sales
  6. Meet with Boutique Owners who will be in attendance as buyers



One  of our goals is to give each designer a 30 minutes pre-show event with  VIP guest, boutique owners and etc... to share the story of your line  give a sneak peek of what they can expect. You'll have total creative control of hair, makeup, music, looks, seating, and you will be able to  host your own casting call for models.   We are providing the venue, hair and makeup team, support and will help facilitate your casting call.
