Modern Indigenous Fashion expresses identity, spacetime, story, play and deep creativity - in leather, feathers, bone, skin, denim, silk, weave, brocade, wool, beads, graffiti, chain, stone, and colour.

Humans have always adorned themselves to explore beauty, story, spirit, and belonging as our lives, roles and the world expands. In Indigenous Turtle Island, regalia is a highest art form, always integrating materials and new truths. Contemporary Indigenous fashion mixes modern day glamour, high regalia and street styles with legacies of colonization, industrialization, and raises up clothing as an art form and statement.

This Fashion Week expresses political, environmental and economic truths of land, territory, and rightful place. These designers showcase modern Indigenous regalia that's innovative, vibrant, visible, resilient, beautiful, and proud. Brands and styles try to copy Indigenous design around the world. VIFW upholds authentic Indigenous artistry and reclaims the strong stories that draw global eyes and longing. We raise up Indigenous artistry, materials, and legacy with power,
visibility, and deepest beauty.
