About Midwest Fashion Week
It is the mission of Midwest Fashion Week (MFW) to bring high fashion into the many aspects of Midwestern life and industry and to help those in the region who wish to pursue a career in the fashion industry.

About DirectEmployers Institute
DirectEmployers Institute (DEI) brings learning to life by uniting public and private employers, schools and non-profit organizations that have a passion for creating a diversified workforce for Indiana students who are socioeconomically disadvantaged due to underrepresentation or disabilities. We inspire and prepare the next generation of a more diverse global workforce by bringing a simulated workplace environment directly to students in state-of-the-art, project-based STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) Learning Labs and through local workplace learning programs. Our organization was founded in 2012 and we received our 501(c)3 status in 2014. We envision a future in which students who are low income, from underrepresented groups, and have disabilities, gain hands-on project-based experiences and workplace learning opportunities with Indiana employers to prepare them to enter high-wage careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) and explore contemporary business practices with local employers. To achieve this vision, we work closely with educational and youth-serving organizations to identify high potential, socioeconomically disadvantaged students and match them with employers that are committed to increasing equality and diversity in their workforce.
