Native Fashion - When You’re In, You’re In

Apr 5, 2013

Mon. 4/8 11a: Right now the nation is watching Taos Pueblo designer Patricia Michaels as she continues to edge her way to the top of this season’s cable TV series “Project Runway.”

Michaels infuses Native imagery and designs into her creations to grab the judges’ attention. We want to open up the seams on what it means to be “in” in Native Fashion.

How do Native designs of today dictate future trends on both Native and mainstream catwalks? Who are the cutting edge Native fashion designers of 2013 and what’s inspiring their creations?

Guests include Native fashionista and scholar Dr. Jessica Metcalfe (Turtle Mountain Chippewa) with Beyond Buckskin Fashion Blog and Native artist Nicholas Galanin (Tlingit/Aleut).
