“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
