Are you ready to join the movement to make the Miami Valley and Southwest Ohio fashion destination? Both I-75 and I-70 run through Dayton, at least 11 other major US cities are within a 1-8 hour drive from Dayton including Chicago, Atlanta, Indianapolis, Pittsburgh, St. Louis, Detroit, Memphis, and Nashville just to name a few, many of which have CFDA Connects programs making the Dayton area prime real estate for fashion manufacturing and headquarters.
With 100% of the funds raised going directly back to programming, the local fashion community, and economy, we are looking for long term strategic partners with experience in marketing, education, law, manufacturing, business management, and more. (DE-FI) has been largely self-fund with (DE-FI)'s Owner/Director Caressa L. Brown carrying most of the financial load. The first 8 years of our work were volunteer and community outreach focused, however, with new levels of growth and opportunities plus the economic strain that the pandemic brought on comes additional hardships that require additional support. Your support helps us to keep our programing affordable and by removing and/or reducing some of the financial barriers, we help to turn dreams into reality for talent who seek out (DE-FI) Global INC's support from around the world making (DE-FI) one of the fastest growing and influential regional fashion organizations in the country!
We have organically grown into "The Resource" for all things fashion and creative with our grassroots movement that has revitalized the design and fashion industry in our city as well as serving as the inspiration and major influencer for multiple startups and initiatives in the city that are building an economic composition and creating a positive impact on the Miami Valley as a whole.
By becoming a partner, you are rallying with us in:
