About the DFI Gala

The DMACC Fashion Institute is hosting its 7th annual fashion gala. This year we are proud to present ‘Prohibited’. All designs are handcrafted by DFI students using unconventional and sustainable materials. The annual gala is a great opportunity for our students to showcase their talents and creativity for the community. This avant-garde event is going to look a little different this year. There will be multiple runway showtimes for the in-person VIP event and a virtual runway show for those at home.

The annual DFI Fashion Gala was born in the spring of 2015 to create a deeper more meaningful experience for students. Students who enroll in APP 300: Fashion Events & PR work together to plan, organize, produce, and promote this event each year.

This yearly project provides opportunities for students to acquire the skills needed to be competitive in the fashion and events industry. It also introduces the students to the local art scene, businesses, mentors, events, and other programs. The gala has been proof that the best learning happens when you expand beyond the classroom walls.
