SWAIA Models 2023

SWAIA Fashion is extremely grateful for every model, actor, star and person who has walked in the annual Indigenous Fashion Show. We have become a strong and diverse family on the runway,  behind the scenes and backstage. Please learn more about the extraordinary individuals featured on this page. We are always looking for more amazing people!

(The SWAIA model page is in progress. We have many more amazing and talented individuals to highlight. Keep up to date with SWAIA Fashion and our models at @SWAIANATIVEFASHION.)

SWAIA is grateful for the exquisite designers, artists and models who put a tremendous amount of time, commitment, skills and talent into the SWAIA Fashion Shows. SWAIA is a not-for-profit Native arts organization that has been in place for over 100 years. The artists and talent are SWAIA . This year a gracious sponsor is funding the SWAIA models. For the first time, we are proud to pay the models who have been volunteering for the past 10 years. As SWAIA Fashion grows, our goal is to pay our models a top model fee and to pay our designers. Creating a collection for the SWAIA runway is extremely costly and time-consuming. With generous future sponsors and supporters, we can make this happen!
