FashioNative

Posted 13/12/06 in EVENTS

FashioNative fashion show and exhibition features four of the finest contemporary First Nations fashion designers: Angela DeMontigny, Sage Paul, Chessa Syrette and Tracy Toulouse. 

Showcasing wearable art that celebrates traditional elements and contemporary practices of First Nations designers.  The designs featured highlight the impact of Aboriginal fashion  and attempts to de-mystify the idea of what First Nations fashion is. 

First Nations designs have quickly become part of the contemporary mainstream fashion industry, albeit without any consultation from First Nations fashion designers. The exhibit highlights the significance of traditional fashion, as well as contemporary fashion being created by First Nations designers.

“Our goal is to educate the community on the uniqueness, history and proper usage of First Nations design. FashioNative allows us to accomplish this, while also providing First Nations fashion designers with the opportunity to display their work to the wider public.”

- Janis Monture, Executive Director of the Woodland Cultural Centre.
