A subsidiary of the Dayton Emerging Fashion Incubator (DE-FI) LLC and in conjunction with our sister company The House of (DE-FI)ance: A Fashion & Design Co-working Experience and The Dayton Garment and Textile District, Dayton Threads, is a unique retail business that creates an innovative online and brick and mortar creative shopping experience for our customers while promoting and supporting the finest independent fashion and design talent from across the country.
Over the years, we've found that after each event that (DE-FI) produced whether a Runway Experience or a Professional Development WERKshop, the demand for our design talent grew as well as their needs and the request for our services. It was evident that more needed to be done.
Dayton Threads was established as the next level in (DE-FI)'s quintfecta incubator approach assisting independent and emerging designers reach their goals.
Dayton threads, specializes in high quality, independent and emerging designer clothing, accessories, homewear and more; giving our customers direct access to the next big thing in fashion and design. Like our parent company (DE-FI), we're disrupting the fashion industry and re(DE-FI)ing mundane ideas of what it means to shop small and supporting independent designers and artisans, each of whom have been carefully selected from across the country.
We work to promote and empower emerging talent, while showcasing a curated selection of their products in a stylish yet ethically and environmentally conscious fashion community. We also offer micro-manufacturing at our store front location so not only do designers have an opportunity to have hands on quality control over their products, customers can also receive alterations on site if an look doesn't quite fit right, as well as having customized pieces made just for you!
Fashion, Design, and Beauty are multi-billion dollar a year industries. It's time that you build your own table and get your piece of the pie; Dayton Threads is here for you providing the tools, support, and access!
