The work that has been done over the past 7 years by (DE-FI) has all been voluntary, the only time that we've ever charged for our services was when we hosted an event or traveled to Chicago to take the models to visit agencies and we only charged $50/person. Unfortunately due to COVID-19 shutdowns, we had to cancel Dayton Fashion Week in March 2020 which was to serve as the fundraiser for our House to help with startup cost. We are in need of sewing supplies and equipment donations! Whether you are cleaning out your sewing studio, craft stash, fabric leftovers, art closet, estate collection, or unfinished project we’d love to take the items that are no longer useful to you and give them another life in our House. Monetary Donations can also be made HERE!
We are in need of the following donations:
Your support and contributions will enable us to meet our goals!
