Volunteer Overview

About the Fashion INcrowd

Indiana Fashion Week (INDFW) will take place August 16 – 21, 2021 in Indianapolis, IN. In preparation for this exciting week of events, we are assembling a team of high-energy, highly motivated volunteers — a team we call The Fashion INcrowd. Volunteers are not required to have any previous fashion experince. We will use their competencies and skills to place them in areas where they will thrive!
