About Fash Bash
Beginning in 1970, the FJC and the DIA presented Fash Bash® as an annual fundraiser for the museum. It quickly became one of Detroit’s most popular and successful fundraisers, drawing a much sought after “who’s who” crowd from metro Detroit to enjoy an evening of fashion.
For more than three decades, FJC has been committed to inspiring new generations of art lovers to show their support for the DIA, one of North America’s leading art museums. By bringing together young professionals with a shared interest in promoting the arts, FJC has been credited with hosting some of Detroit’s premier social events while encouraging lifelong participation with the museum.
