About IFWTO & Modelling With Us
Indigenous Fashion Week Toronto (IFWTO) is a fashion, craft & textiles festival presenting the most distinct and progressive Indigenous-made works at the intersection of art, fashion and culture. IFWTO celebrates global Indigenous expression in fashion and the arts and its grounding in Indigenous knowledge, ways of life and storytelling. Led by Indigenous women, IFWTO connects audiences to artistic and cultural expression that celebrates and advances Indigenous artists and designers.
Indigenous Fashion Week Toronto will host four runway showcases featuring 23 designers that will take place over four days. We are seeking 20 models for each runway showcase who have performance experience, including in modelling, dance or acting. Hired models will be invited to perform in 1 – 4 of the runway showcases with 1 – 7 appearances per show, based on designer requirements.
Models will work under the direction of IFWTO Artistic Director and report to the Model Coordinator. Hair & Make-up will be provided. Models are requested to bring two pairs of shoes that they can confidently walk in. Models will be documented for PR, media, educational, promotional, archival, artistic and possibly other kinds of purposes during this event in video, a live stream and photography and will be required to sign a release form to participate.
