Become a TFI Member, Get Great Perks.  

Fashion, above all else, is a business. TFI understands this better than anyone. That’s why we help savvy, emerging designers launch and grow their fashion businesses (and, we’ve been doing it for 35 years!).

Our members and alumni have become award-winning, bold-face names worn by royalty and A-list celebrities – think Smythe, Greta Constantine, Jenny Bird and more.

We are a passionate, non-profit community that opens up real, business-building opportunities for entrepreneurs like you.

And if that's not enough, TFI members can access great perks to save you money and propel your business forward. CLICK HERE for a list of membership benefits.

Member's Guest Fee

You can now bring a guest to your mentor consultation!

One of the perks of being a TFI Member is that you can invite 1 or more guests to attend your exclusive mentor consultations.

Pay the nominal $10 fee (plus HST) per person, in advance of your appointment and you're all set. 

Members must accompany their guest(s) at all times and both must adhere to our House Rules, which can be found here.

This cool bonus is only applicable for mentor consultations, for current validated TFI members.

Not a designer or fashion entrepreneur? No problem!

You can sponsor a membership for someone you know or donate a membership anonymously; we will award it to an equity-deserving candidate.
