Addressing Community Concerns

April 22, 2019


Dear Indiana Fashion Community,

Recently, our team has received an influx of inquiries following the release of details for upcoming model castings for our June event. Many of these inquiries have been included concerns from the members of our community regarding the application fee requirement. I want to reiterate that the work we are doing at the Indiana Fashion Foundation and Indiana Fashion Week is community-centered and it is the community’s interests that we have at heart. After much consideration and internal dialogue, we have collectively decided to waive the $10 application fee to ensure that all interested individuals are able to take advantage of this opportunity.


We understand that trust is the key ingredient in our building recipe. It is paramount to our mission of mobilizing the fashion industry in Indiana that we establish and maintain trusting relationships with the individuals and organizations that make up the fashion ecosystem in the state. We endeavor to achieve this by keeping the lines of communication open so that we can hear from you. I want to encourage you to continue to share your thoughts, concerns, and opinions with us as they are what help us to most effectively serve you.

We would like to thank Indianapolis-based company, T-Cuts, whose generous donation covered the expenses associated with the model castings. The Indiana Fashion Foundation is a non-profit organization that operates thanks to the generosity of community partners such as this one. We look forward to your engagement as we continue to build a platform that serves you in excellence.


Sincerely,

Denisha “Dlang” Ferguson
Creator & Executive Director, Indiana Fashion Week
