Orlando Fashion District is well on its way to helping make Orlando a fashion destination and building a Garment District here.
Here are some of the highlights, accomplishments, and partnerships we formed in 2018.
With the help of Juan Bermudez, Sr Creative Director, we now have a website featuring a fashion event calendar to help locals and tourists stay informed on what’s happening in Orlando’s Fashion Scene.
Richard Krent of Krent Studios has agreed to help Orlando Fashion District define our project development plans architecturally. As Orlando’s former city architect and Sr. Facilities Design Manager for Universal Theme Parks, development projects in Dubai, Africa, Panama and other major cities around the globe, our literal plan proposals are coming soon! http://krentstudio.com/
KDS One Studios has become the home of Orlando Fashion District while our future plans are in development. Gina Vincenza, Orlando Fashion District’s Founder has taken up residence there as a celebrity seamstress, fashion, costume and tactical designer and shares her Design House Of Vincenza space with OFD for meetings, a monthly fundraising event and more, with workshops and seminars coming soon.
KDS One Studios, 3601 Vineland Rd, Suite 10, Orlando, FL 32811

Orlando Fashion District supported our first local runway with “Africans In Orlando” by providing runway show event services including garment rack rental, seamstress and wardrobe services, steaming and ironing equipment and volunteers to help their designers prepare garments for the show, dressing and changing models.
Orlando Fashion District partnered with the Goodfinds department of Goodwill Industries Of Central Florida to produce their first ever runway show of “Little Black Dresses” at the Southern Women’s Show using Goodwill employees, volunteer models, hair stylists, and makeup artists.
