Calling all Designers

This year the Canadian Aboriginal Festival 2008 will be taking place on November 28, 29, & 30, 2008. With that being said, Turtle Concepts would like to welcome past participants and new designers to the Festival. For the past 12 years Turtle Concepts has been the coordinator of the Fashion Pavillion and every year it gets bigger and better.

The CANAB Festival is intended for the Aboriginal community to promote their ideas, business, and culture. It is a great opportunity for Aboriginal artists to gain more exposure, network, and ultimately sell their designs. The Festival is providing a venue for artists to showcase their designs; it is not a paid event. No designers are sponsored by the Festival to come in. Everyone is given an equal opportunity to be recognized.

Four years ago the designer package was introduced with great success. Registration is $100 and includes the following:

  • 3 days of fashion shows - roughly 4 shows altogether
  • MC to promote each designer (details of garments, etc)
  • Organization by TC (models, fittings, lineup, stage presentation, etc.)

Designers who do not pay the registration fee will not have the benefits of the designer package throughout the Festival.


The CANAB Festival and Turtle Concepts is optimistic this year will be our biggest and brightest to date. We would like to welcome all participants to the Festival and hope that it will be as memorable an experience for you as it is for us. Please feel free to contact us with any questions and/or concerns at the number listed above and we hope to see you at CANAB 2008! Sincerely,

Dave Jones
Concept Developer/Fashion Director

Valyne Morphet
Executive Administrator
