Our work speaks for itself and the results are unmatched. Out of over a thousand models that (DE-FI) has supported, over one hundred of those models have signed with agencies. They've been featured on fashion's biggest stages including New York, Paris, and Milan's Fashion Week. They've appeared in campaigns for Kohl's, Versace, Micheal Kors, Marc Jacobs, and more they've been profiled in InStyle and Vogue, and have appeared in national commercials, prime time tv, and films.
(DE-FI) has also mentored and worked with designers who have been featured in Vogue Italia, Ebony, and Ellements, they've worked behind the scenes of New York Fashion Week and have been scouted by some of the top design programs and companies around the country from FIDM, Kent, DAAP, Ross, L Brands, and more. (DE-FI) alum have been named to Forbes Under 30 Fellows list and their work has been seen on A List celebrities at the Grammys, the Oscars, Clive Davis Pre-Grammy Gala, Paris Fashion week, and the Tribeca Film Festival.
Most importantly, as a volunteer based organization, (DE-FI) has always put community first, taught self-worth, focused on inner beauty, and mentored area youth. For nearly a decade, we've helped organize drives that fed and clothed thousands of people across the Miami Valley for the holidays, supported and sponsored events and organizations designed to fight substance abuse and improve relationships between under-served communities and the police. (DE-FI) has collected can goods for the hungry, school supplies for low income communities, built homes for the homeless, fought cancer by raising money towards a cure as well as hosting bone marrow drives...and we're just getting started.
