Native Fashion in the City, the annual Native American fashion show that takes place in March of each year, opens up the application process and will accept submissions for indigenous designers who are interested in participating in this year’s event. The online search begins Wed., January 16, 2020, and runs through early February.
“If you’ve got the potential, then we’d love to give the chance for you to pursue your goals of being apart of NFITC 2020,” said Kelly Holmes, founder of NFITC and part of the planning committee.
Applications are online at nativefashioninthecity.com only, in which designers of all experience levels are invited to apply. However, event is only open to those who are Native American and/or First Nations Canada and are tribally-enrolled.
Select applicants will be notified in late January if they’re apart of the annual fashion event, which coincides with Denver March Powwow in Denver, Colorado.
“This is an amazing opportunity for those who are interested in breaking into the fashion industry,” Holmes said.
A note for those interested in modeling: models are invited to try out at many of NFITC’s various Model Auditions throughout the country and will be listed on the NFITC 2020 Model page.
