“The OGs of Indigenous Fashion” Panel Conversation

Nov 12, 2022 At Marlene Nathan Meyerson Auditorium

Relive the late twentieth-century fashion chronicles of Santa Fe through this conversation about the progressive fashion scene surrounding the Institute of American Indian Arts (IAIA) from the 1980s to the present.

As part of the IAIA Museum of Contemporary Native Arts’ (MoCNA) ongoing programming for Art of Indigenous Fashion, a panel featuring Project Runway finalist Patricia Michaels (Taos Pueblo) ’89, photorealistic beadwork phenom Marcus Amerman (Choctaw) ’84, and self-taught couturier Orlando Dugi (Diné) will discuss the early days of their careers, moderated by MoCNA guest curator and IAIA Assistant Professor of Art History Amber-Dawn Bear Robe (Siksika Nation).

From traveling fashion shows to trendy nights at Heat: A Freak Boutique (one of the first Indigenous fashion boutiques on the Santa Fe Plaza) to visions for a fashionable future, these style icons have entertaining and thought-provoking stories of sartorial revolution, innovation, and experimentation to share.

The event will be livestreamed on the IAIA website and Facebook.
