Victoria's Arctic Fashion
Inuit / Canada / Fashion
The creator of V.A.F., Victoria Kakuktinniq, a Nunavummiut, born and raised in Rankin Inlet, has always been deeply immersed in Inuit Culture. Surrounded by skilled seamstresses, Victoria was intrigued and inspired by the parkas she saw sewn. Following a traditional sewing course in Rankin Inlet, she enrolled at Winnipeg’s MC College in the Fashion Design and Apparel Production program. Victoria gained notoriety there for her form fitting parkas, with signature embroideries. Soon after completing the program, Victoria returned to Nunavut and created Victoria’s Arctic Fashion.
