Statement of Solidarity

“… in the final analysis, a riot is the language of the unheard. And what is it that America has failed to hear?… It has failed to hear that the promises of freedom and justice have not been met. And it has failed to hear that large segments of white society are more concerned about tranquility and the status quo than about justice, equality, and humanity.” – Dr. Martin Luther King

“Toronto’s first fashion week dedicated entirely to Indigenous creators and storytellers was a uniquely Indigenous experience. Front row seats were reserved for elders, instead of fashion VIPs, and gender-fluid, body-positive Indigenous and non-Indigenous models walked the runway to Tanya Tagaq throat-singing tracks”

— Kelly Boutsalis, Toronto Star, 2018

The Indigenous fashion community has been one that I have felt most at home and most connected to, particularly with [IFA]."

— Lesley Hampton, Designer, 2021

“IFA is currently one of the biggest showcases of Indigenous design in North America. The event provides a much-needed space for underrepresented talent to showcase their work on a large scale, all of whom challenge preconceived notions of what Indigenous design is and can be.”

— Christian Allaire, Vogue Magazine, 2021
