We are pleased to announce our 2024 Indigenous Community Fashion Showcase. This year’s theme is “Threads From The Land.” 

The community fashion show is a unique opportunity to showcase your traditional or contemporary Indigenous inspired textile clothing and/or accessories made by YOU! (Examples: Ribbon Skirt, beaded jewelry, footwear etc.) Each judged category (Juniors, Teen, Adults & Elder) will offer a chance for the community to appreciate the details and the craftsmanship of your piece. Prize money is added for winning pieces announced at the conclusion of the show. Artists are responsible for showcasing their own design or providing their own model.

If you are interested in showcasing your design in our judged community fashion show, please answer all questions below.

To enter the community fashion showcase, please accurately describe the piece with as many details as possible. This is important as our emcees will be describing your masterpiece as you (or your model) walks down the runway.
