Modista Fashion Group was founded in 2008 by Kori Fields and Shanetta Dorset. These two students noticed a lack of diversity within some fashion organizations on campus and decided to make a change. Starting out as Modista: Minority Fashion Group, the mission was to cater to the underrepresented minority population within the Fashion School. In 2015, Modista dropped minority from the name, thus leaving Modista Fashion Group. MFG today lives on as the most diverse and second largest fashion organization on Kent State's campus.
