Sponsorship Opportunities

Help support Mixed Messages and the DMACC fashion students by sponsoring or giving a general donation.  Every dollar helps contribute to the gala's success and growth!

Mixed Messages is a student produced event, created as a class project.  The DMACC fashion program is dedicated to creating a deeper more meaningful experience for our students.  We are actively engaged in building a thriving community that inspires, educates and connects students of all ages and backgrounds. 

This project was started in 2015 and was established to allow students an opportunity to acquire the skills needed to succeed in the industry.  It introduces the students to the local art scene, businesses, mentors, events, and programs.  This project has been proof that the best learning happens when you expand beyond the classroom walls.

If you'd like to be apart of this amazing educational experience consider making a donation.
