About Indiana Fashion Week

Indiana Fashion Week (INDFW) sits at the intersection of art & community and embodies the spirit of creativity and collaboration.​

This event is designed to serve as the annual “convention” of fashion professionals & style enthusiasts from across the state of Indiana and abroad. INDFW provides educational, entertainment, and exhibition opportunities for the individuals & organizations that make up the fashion ecosystem of Indiana.

During the 2019 Indiana Fashion Week, it was our mission to mobilize the fashion industry in the state of Indiana and to engage local talent in the global fashion industry. We accomplished just that!

Our guests included Indiana’s First Lady, Janet Holcomb & Fern Mallis, Creator of New York Fashion Week along with a host of fashion industry writers, consultants, influencers and leaders.

The Ultimate Goal of Indiana Fashion Week

In a survey conducted by Indiana Fashion Foundation in 2021, 85.6% of respondents indicated that — if possible — they would be interested in pursuing fashion careers while living in Indiana.

It is our goal to incorporate diverse events and activations into the programming of Indiana Fashion Week to incubate the elements of a strong fashion industry, which include creativity, community, and commerce. These opportunities allow individuals to utilize their education and skills to fulfill fashion industry functions, which — when partnered with education & training — can create avenues for expanding or developing professional roles that will aid in growing Indiana’s fashion workforce.

The IN Fashion Marketplace is designed to provide Indiana-based designers & retailers with opportunities to expand their customer base and participate in fashion commerce through experiential shopping activations.
