Toronto Indigenous Fashion Week Celebrates Culture and Art

 Indigenous Artists, fashion designers, fashionistas and community members will come together March 13-16, 2019 to celebrate the second annual Toronto Indigenous Fashion Week.

More than 27 Indigenous fashion designers, artists and models from around the globe will come to Toronto to partake in the four-day event at Artscape – Daniels Spectrum and York University to showcase their work including Indigenous artist Joseph Sagai.

“I am thrilled to be working with so many talented members of the Indigenous community for the 2nd annual Toronto Indigenous Fashion Week,” says Charlene Lindsay, Founder of the event. “Indigenous designers and artists need to be celebrated in Canada and our fashion week offers them a platform to showcase their work to an audience that might not be familiar with Indigenous fashion and culture.”

The Toronto Indigenous Fashion Week will feature several events including an Indigenous Marketplace, Pow-wow, workshops that include dress making, beading, drumming circles, Metis jigging as well as a Runway Show.

The main objective of this year’s Toronto Indigenous Fashion Week is to provide a platform to foster entrepreneurship opportunities for Indigenous populations living in isolated and remote regions.

For this year’s show, organizers have partnered with YEDI (York Entrepreneurship Development Institute) and Osgoode Hall Law School IP clinic in order to provide all the Indigenous entrepreneurs working with them the best possible training. Designers participating in the show will be provided with educational opportunities to help them understand how important copyright and trademark protection is.

Following the Toronto Indigenous Fashion Week, organizers will turn their attention to the already launched Ottawa Indigenous Fashion Week (July 1 -4, 2019), the Montreal Indigenous Fashion Week (October 16- 19, 2019) and the Thunder Bay Indigenous Fashion Week (December 11 – 14, 2019).
