About the Native Max Takes the Northwest Fashion Show:

The Denver, Colorado-based multimedia company is bringing the Native Max Experience to the Northwest. Native Max fashion shows are multifaceted events that serve as intersections of Indigenous art, business, fashion, and culture. They help shape the Indigenous fashion narrative, create economic opportunities, and celebrate the rich tapestry of creativity of Indigenous fashion designers while serving as a platform for new talent.

A Word from Kelly Holmes, the CEO of Native Max and Producer of the fashion show:

“Indigenous fashion is a reflection of the power and pride we have as Indigenous people. With this show, we aim to not only showcase our fashion but also share our stories, dreams, and hopes. Each piece that you’ll see is a testament to dedication, creativity, and the unending passion that drives us.”

The event is co-produced by Mary Kelsay of MEKA Clothing and Lisa Fruichantie of Transcendence Designs in collaboration with Tacoma Arts Live.
