The Arts of Fashion Foundation is a 501(c) (3), public, non-profit organization, based in San Francisco, California. Established in 2001,[1] the focus of the foundation is supporting creativity and design in fashion and the arts linked to it.[2] Among their projects are the International Arts of Fashion Competition, The MasterClass Series, the CarteBlanche and Debut Series (and the latter's spinoff, InvestFashion), The Tandem Series and Fashion.edu.

The Foundation, in cooperation with the Council of Fashion Designers of America, created a petition in support of the Design Piracy Prohibition Act - IDPPPA (S.3728).
