  The Canadian Aboriginal Festival is proud to announce two (2) fashion shows this year - a gala star-studded fundraiser show the evening of Thursday, Nov.24, and the Turtle Concepts show featured in the Rogers Centre during the Pow Wow weekend Nov. 26 - 27. Details for both shows are below.  


As the official representative of the Fashion Pavilion, I would like to personally invite everyone to the Canadian Aboriginal Festival 2005. For the past 9 years my company Turtle Concepts has been involved in the Festival and we feel each year it continues to get better and better…

One main tradition Turtle Concepts has upheld at the Festival is our use of “real” models. The models TC uses for the fashion shows are just “regular” kids from all different areas of Canada. Each model has participated in a TC confidence workshop and has all the qualities Turtle Concepts feels a youth role model should possess. The Fashion section of the Festival has been recognized as one of the favourites for families to come and see “confidence in action on the runway”.

Each year Aboriginal designers from across Canada make the journey to Toronto to showcase their designs at the Festival. The clothing ranges from Traditional Aboriginal regalia to more contemporary new age designs. In the past we have featured upwards of 20 designers and we would like to encourage designers of all ages to contact us if they are interested in participating in this year’s event. This year will be our best to date!

With that we hope you enjoy the Festival and stop by the Fashion Pavilion. We guarantee a great show!
