Host A Pop-Up Shop

We  are currently seeking designers to host pop up shops during Dayton Fashion Week!  Mark your calendar for December 11th-14th.  We market to  buyers, media and directly to end consumers, so you may take  wholesale  orders as well as sell product in your pop up space.   We expect  attendees to purchase directly from you, but we encourage you  to focus  on the media attendance for opportunities to expand your brand  to new  markets.  If you have a location in mind, you are more than welcomed to  use it, or we can also assist in helping you find and secure a venue for  your event. 


Early Bird Applications to participate as a Pop-Up Shop are due by September 1, 2019, the deadline for all applications is October 1st, 2019 or until  all spots have been filled.  Applications will be reviewed in the order  they are received, so it is  beneficial to complete your application early. There is a $50 fee to apply, any additional cost related to the  venue are at the expense of the designer. The Dayton Fashion Week Board  will review each application and provide each brand with a yes, no or   wait-list answer.  Should your application be rejected, 100% of your  application fee will be returned to you within 30 days. Pop-up Shop Participants must provide:

  • Signage
  • Method of collecting payment
  • Come equipped with wifi solution if taking payments online
  • Product displays
  • Clothing racks
  • Shop attendants (up to four)
  • Supervision of merchandise at all times during event. (We are NOT responsible for lost, stolen, or damaged items)

If  you'd like to produce and host your own Fashion Experience  for Dayton  Fashion Week via unique access to exhibitions, studio tours,  runway  events, conversations, or more, please see Event Hosting 101 for additional information.
