Vancouver Indigenous Fashion Week 2019
Time & Location
About the Event
Vancouver Indigenous Fashion Week (VIFW) exists at the intersection of contemporary Indigenous fashion and community development and healing. Mixing the legacy of Indigenous artistry with modern day high regalia and street styles, and engaging in mentorship across generations in design, artistry, and production, VIFW goes beyond surface beauty and highlights how worn identity can build connection with Indigenous values, wisdom, empowerment, and history. The mission of VIFW is to bring global recognition to Indigenous fashion designers and artisans from the Northwest coast and across Turtle Island. VIFW showcases the power and beauty of authentic Indigenous art and design by supporting talent development and organizing showcases throughout the year, culminating with Vancouver Indigenous Fashion Week.
