The Fashion Arts Collective(FAC) is a non-profit committed to nurturing aspiring designer talent and supporting the Midwest fashion ecosystem. FAC’s mission is to provide regional fashion designers with mentoring, training, resources, and industry network opportunities to fulfill their creative potential in the fashion industry.
The Fashion Arts Collective develops the whole designer and the fashion ecosystem through four project pillars: creative inspiration, skill development, resource development, and business incubation.
We are planting seeds- or should we say “laying stitches” – through year-round designer programming. Our Educational Workshops are available for designers at all levels. Whether just starting out or seeking manufacturing partners, our local designers need assistance with business plans, networking, strategic actions, and marketing knowledge. FAC helps them to sharpen creative abilities, hone business acumen, and connect resources and opportunities.
In short, we want to turn creative people into creative entrepreneurs. We want to provide our designers with the resources and skills to produce innovative and beautiful works of art, as well as profitable, consumer-friendly garments. Our goal is to marry the necessary components of creativity and market knowledge to produce successful fashion businesses.
