Heart of it all fashion (HOA) began as a student organization at the Ohio State University in 2014, created by Aaron "AC"  Carey and Nadiyah Harper.

Recruiting friends and fellow students, they began planning what would become the first Heart of it All Fashion Experience. in 2015 the duo founded the organization as nonprofit, allowing HOA to expand opportunities to creatives beyond the Ohio State campus.

Through their dedication and hard work, Heart of it All Fashion has grown from a fashion showcase at Ohio State to a reliable resource for passionate individuals looking to break into the fashion and related industries.
