EVOLVE - Honouring the Girls Stories - 2010 Vancouver Olympics
This event will support and promote the Stardale Women’s Group youth programs which work towards bringing awareness to the violence and inter-generational impacts of violence and abuse within the Aboriginal community of Canada.
Bee the Change is committed to presenting art and fashion to the world in a respectful manner and encouraging a better understanding of Aboriginal art and fashion. The talented Suzette Amaya will be the Master of Ceremonies for this event and will welcome special guest speaker Helen McPhaden, the Executive Director of Stardale Women’s Group. Bee the Change Aboriginal Fashion will present the innovative and original works of seven (7) selected Native fashion designers from across Canada. These designers are uniquely individual in design, style, market, and inspiration. This showcase will show the diversity of aboriginal design across Canada. Each designer has their own way of using materials in a way that reflects their own style – be it traditional, contemporary, and futuristic, apparel industry, or historical pieces reflecting the past culture of Aboriginal people but evolving ahead with new ideas.
