The Dayton Emerging Fashion Incubator (DE-FI) LLC is proud to be the first fashion organization in Ohio to take the lead in establishing laws and guidelines for open, honest, ethical, fair and transparent practices within the regional fashion community. It was (DE-FI) Models that first reached out to our local and state elected officials to express our concerns and demand laws be put on the books. All work done by (DE-FI) professionals must be performed in a professional manner, free of any form
of discrimination or harassment. Due to the lack of legal/regulatory protections for models and others working in the modeling
industry within our region we, as a community of professionals, have created
the following Code of Conduct.
