Developed by a team of Blackfoot Elders, students from diverse Nations, and faculty from Mount Royal University, Otahpiaaki Fashion Week encompasses five nights of workshops, performances, screenings, and language projects as well as couture, streetwear, and modern regalia on the runway.

With the theme of Pride and Protest, join over 30 fashion designers, artists, performers, and creatives to celebrate Indigenous beauty in all of its forms as a gesture of reconciliation.

Anchored to Call-to-Action #83, Otahpiaaki’s goal is to invite and contribute to significant social, cultural, restorative, and economic reconciliation across reserves, communities, regions, and territories by promoting, protecting, and providing resources and capacity building by using a seed-to-runway social enterprise model.

Otahpiaaki Fashion Week runs November 5 to 10, 2018 and full details can be found at otahpiaakifashionweek.com.
