APPLY NOW – Until May 5, 2023, IFA Is accepting applications for its 2024 runway and marketplace programs from Indigenous artists, designers, art collectives and brands
Indigenous Fashion Arts (IFA) is a non-profit arts organization that sustains Indigenous practices in fashion, craft and textiles through designer-focused initiatives, public engagement and sector innovation.
We are committed to nurturing the deep connections between mainstream fashion, Indigenous art and traditional practice. Led by Indigenous women, we at IFA support each other and our communities to foster, illuminate perceptions of, and celebrate Indigenous cultures.
IFA’s most extensive program is the biennial Indigenous Fashion Arts Festival, presenting over 100 Indigenous artists and designers from across Turtle Island and worldwide in runway shows, a marketplace, panel discussions, hands-on workshops and art exhibitions.
