Details: The  fourth edition of the Indigenous Fashion Arts Festival (IFA) will feature 100+ Indigenous artists, designers, makers, brands and pundits from Canada and worldwide. Will take place in Downtown Toronto over four days with runway shows and a 70-vendor marketplace at CF Toronto Eaton Centre, with the Fashioning Resurgence symposium and workshop series at Toronto Metropolitan University’s Student Learning Centre. In 2024, IFA plans to welcome its biggest audience yet, with attendees experiencing the dynamic Indigenous talent in fashion today.

IFA will present four runway shows at CF Toronto Eaton Centre after mall hours under the theme Reverence & Conviction, curated by Wanda Nanibush (Anishinaabe), Melanie Egan and  Sage Paul (Denesuline). This year’s runway program celebrates the rich cultural expressions of Indigenous peoples from Canada, the USA, Brazil, Greenland, New Zealand and Indonesia.

The IFA Marketplace will be held June 1 and 2 at CF Toronto Eaton Centre during business hours for attendees to explore, shop, and connect with 75+ Indigenous artists, designers, collectives, and brands worldwide. These exhibitors reflect the diversity and distinction of Indigenous fashion, craft and textiles with a wide variety of quality-made clothing and accessories with gender and size-inclusive, ready-to-wear, bespoke and upcycled options.

The Festival will also include the Fashioning Resurgence Symposium with six panel discussions and a masterclass running May 30-June 2 at Toronto Metropolitan University’s Student Learning Centre with topics including Artificial Intelligence, Sustainability, Fashion in Galleries & Museums, Grant Writing and Mindful Merchandising.
