International Indigenous Fashion Week Inc. is proud to present the International Indigenous Arts & Fashion Awards to be hosted online in Regina, Saskatchewan on Saturday, August 29th, 2020. Indigenous designers, models, musicians, and artists will be honoured and recognized for their outstanding accomplishments and contributions to their community.
Through recognition and promotion of the achievement and talent, IIAFA is dedicated to generating a stronger appreciation and market for our artists and to the economic development of the Indigenous fashion industry. IIAFA is committed to further develop and cultivate our home-grown talent by creating educational programs, mentorship, financial opportunities, and establishing collaborative relationships that strive to unite the fashion community and the various existing, international fashion initiatives.
International Indigenous Fashion Week Inc. (IIFW) is a diverse experience blending fashion and music from artists and designers from around the world. The stimulating and refreshing production includes street wear, eco-friendly & sustainable fashions, and traditional Indigenous designs with a modern-day touch. IIFW has successfully been a global platform for Indigenous designers in helping them break into the mainstream fashion industry. IIFW Inc. is a phenomenally successful and widely recognized event, providing a forum to nurture and celebrate the fashion, modelling, and entertainment industry.
Indigenous designers, models and musicians represent the various First Nations from across Turtle Island, so it is important for IIFW to recognize the rich heritage and history that makes up what Canadian Indigenous culture is today. IIFW takes great pride in showcasing the distinct heritage we have as Indigenous people through today's fashion.
