Letter from our founder

Dear Friends,

I founded the Children’s Institute of Fashion Arts (CIFA) in 2017 because I was concerned that creative children were having a hard time. I know that I thrived because I had art, music, and crafts to keep be centered, entertained, and challenged. In 2012, I had the vision for the CIFA to create a place where children could explore and create and learn in order to begin to know themselves and learn to be authentic.
