Frequently asked questions

What actually is SFi?


SFI is a student-centered, interdisciplinary group with an open-access curriculum. We hold most meetings in the fashion wing of the Myron E. Ullman, Jr. School of Design at the University of Cincinnati's College of Design Architecture Are and Planning (DAAP) but all meetings and activities are open to any UC student. Most programming is also open to the public. We do a lot! We discuss readings, host workshops with sustainable fashion experts, organize clothing swaps, produce a lot of fashion shoots, repaire clothing and make a lot of cool stuff from waste....to name a few. Come join and find out!
