Native Fashion in the City 2020 Phoenix Auditions

Native Fashion In The City

We are more than just a fashion show. Native Fashion in the City is a platform that offers developmental and educational programs, hosts fashion events, seminars and workshops, and fashion week, all of which aim to support the next generation of indigenous fashion talents.


On a Saturday Afternoon, Designer of the Year Alum @ACONAV hosted model auditions for the 7th annual @NativeFashionintheCity which celebrates the latest in #NativeFashion across the country and abroad.

Dozens of aspiring indigenous models descended upon @MoxyHotels in Tempe, AZ with the hope of receiving a golden ticket including the possibility of being scouted by @FordRBA’s Sheena Adams!

Judging panel included Loren Aragon (ACONAV), Kelly Holmes (Director of #NFITC2020), Jared Yazzie (@OXDXClothing) plus #PHXFW’s @HermannPlank + @NiyaDeGroat with mentorship provided by Top 4 Alum @LilRebJo_

“This year’s honorary guest judges came from the renown @PHXFashionWeek family! Hermann Plank, Advisor to PHXFW, and Niyá DeGroat Henry, #PHXFW Branding & Social Media Leader, bring a tremendous wealth of experience in the modeling & fashion industry! We are grateful for their participation as we look for the best of the best in the state of AZ.” -Loren

KUDOS to Loren and the team for pushing Arizona’s indigenous community fashion forward!
