​An Initiative of the Indiana Fashion ​Foundation​​

Making it IN Fashion

​Making it IN Fashion is an initiative of the Indiana Fashion Foundation designed to educate, inspire, and equip fashion professionals in Indiana with information, insight, and tools that will aid in advancing both their careers and the fashion industry statewide. This initiative is comprised of two primary programs, a year-round conversation series and an annual conference. The conversation series involves both online and live events that feature fashion professionals who encompass various functions within the industry including (but not limited to) design, styling, modeling, and communications. The annual Making it IN Fashion Industry Day Conference takes place during Indiana Fashion Week and includes a combination of interviews, panel discussions, and presentations that feature fashion industry experts who provide attendees with information and resources that will elevate their operation and influence within the fashion industry at large.
