The Rebirth of A Fashion Week

Dayton Fashion Week is under new Ownership and Management; powered by the Dayton Emerging Fashion Incubator (DE-FI) LLC the architect of one of the most influential fashion organizations in the country. Dayton Fashion Week will serve as  the official kickoff of (DE-FI)'s first Crowdfunding Campaign to raise money for the opening of The House of (DE-FI)ance: A Fashion & Design Co-working Experience and will feature networking events, an open photoshoot for the digital version of (DE-FI)ance Magazine, an independently produced events by R.U.D.E., and a (DE-FI) produced Headlining Fashion Experience like no other featuring aspiring and emerging designers that are transforming the industry. 


Led by a volunteer team of experienced  fashion industry professionals, business owners,  and event planning specialists,  our vision is to celebrate Dayton as not only the Birthplace of  Aviation  but as the Innovation Capital of the World!  It is our mission to  provide support to Dayton's fashion industries in the form of business  resources, exposure, education, advocacy, and advancement.

Explore the role fashion plays in everyday life. This 4 day series is an important opportunity for our community to unite under a  common passion. Join us in #TheReboot of an all inclusive week long celebration of all things fashion!  Mark your calendars for June 17th-20th, 2020.

The Headlining Fashion Experience Inspired by NYFW: The Show

Having 6 seasons of experience working behind the the scenes with the Council of Fashion Designers of America,  for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.,   Dayton Fashion Week is open to other producers to host their own  #FashionExperience June 17th-20th, 2020.   


Unlike other regional Fashion Weeks, the Headlining event will be produced by (DE-FI),  mirroring that of New York Fashion Week . Each Headlining Designer will have the runway, audience, and venue to themselves for at least an hour.  Meaning, unlike other  regional fashion events, there will not be another designer showing  immediately after; each designer will have a different runway setting and audience, and more! 

Get Tickets

Our parent company, the Dayton Emerging Fashion Incubator (DE-FI) LLC  has a history of selling out events, in fact they've sold out 10 of  our 13 previous events and the 3 that weren't sold out were short just a  few tickets of a sell out. So you (DE-FI)nitely don't want to miss this  opportunity because once tickets are gone, we will not add any  additional tickets. Get your tickets today
