After a two-year pandemic hiatus, Vancouver Indigenous Fashion Week (VIFW) returns to the Queen Elizabeth Theatre on Nov. 28 – Dec. 1, 2022 for its third edition, with the goal of rekindling joy in the face of grief. New collections from 32 Indigenous fashion designers from across Turtle Island (North America) will sashay the runway on models of First Nation / Métis / Inuit descent. Full program and ticket info are available on Nov. 7 at vifw.ca
From its inception in 2017, VIFW has proudly showcased contemporary Indigenous regalia that highlights awe-inspiring works of Indigenous artists and designers in the traditional Coast Salish territory. VIFW will feature a robust artisan market with 40 vendors selling jewelry, clothing, beauty products and other handcrafted goods, in time for the gift-giving holiday season.
