MFW's producers, Berny Martin and Sola Adelowo are passionate about giving back; whether it's through one-on-one support of emerging designers or by helping non-profits like Dress for Success of Indianapolis - MFW is about more than fashion.
Berny Martin, Founder of Midwest Fashion Week, LLC.
In 2006, Berny Martin founded the Midwest Fashion Week, to create a solid foundation from which new and established fashion designers, photographers, models, and stylists could build their lines. Berny knew many people believed the best talent was only to be found in major metropolitan cities; he also knew many people were mistaken. Born in Haiti , Berny's father was very supportive and often encouraged him to create his own business. Little did he or Berny know that while he was completing a Computer Engineering degree at Purdue University, a one-time opportunity to create an entire collection for a fashion show would be the spark that later developed into the Midwest Fashion Week, and launched his Catou clothing line.
With the MFW Berny's vision is to invite the world to discover a city full of talented fashion industry professionals, a city that just happens to be in the Midwest . Like diamonds in the rough he sets out twice a year to help artists and designers shine! Today the MFW attracts attention and interest from around the globe. With emerging talent shaping the future of fashion and established marquees furthering their passion and creativity, there is no better fashion event in the Midwest than the MFW. What makes the MFW so special is Berny's unique commitment to both sides of the fashion industry - from the creative process to the business imperatives that makes a successful line possible. Inspired by his grandparent's charity and giving, Berny is focused on education for young designers to discover how to take their creative energy and turn it into creative success.

Exotic patterns, beautiful fabrics and innovative cuts will be showcased in spring collections for women, men and girls from IJo by Joelle K. Allen, Catou wear by Berny Martin, MF Couture by Marie-France Mumba, Odelya Paris Couture by Colette Ndeke, and SVK Création Paris by Sandra Van-Keer.
Indianapolis-based designer Berny Martin, owner and founder of Catou Clothing, was inspired by his travels to Africa, "After exploring the countryside of Swaziland, I found myself wandering on the beach of Mozambique," explains Martin. "The old architectural buildings of Maputo remind me of the sharpness of fine tailoring of the 60s and the luxury that used to be displayed among the elite. Edgy and elegant, flirty and sophisticated, Catou clothing makes a statement - designed with a creativity that extends beyond conventional fashion to offer a unique look. Martin creates pieces with the customer in mind, paying attention to detail to guarantee well-made clothing that complements its wearer.
