Sorry for being MIA for the past weeks. Here’s the photoshoot I’ve wanted you to see 🙂 the shoot went really well despite having only about an hour with Dorian in Tucson, AZ. Explaining what my culture means to me and that we need more native representation. Hopefully we will work together in future projects. I’m so glad Angel Haze got in contact with him and told me about his work.

I have some huge news! On October 15, 2016 me and two friends of mine were luckily invited to Loren’s fashion line called ACONAV where he showcased his “Shattered Collection” at Phoenix Fashion Week at Talking Stick Resort & Casino in Scottsdale, AZ. He is Acoma Pueblo and is killing the game using his cultural designs! Representing the native’s he has combined traditional elegant designs that are his own. True to his style the dresses were bold and timeless.
My good friend Kelly Holmes, who is the founder of Native Max Magazine came to show her support and wore a beautiful original Aconav dress. Also Grace Dove -actress from the movie Revenant- came to show her support as well wearing an elegant Aconav dress with a graceful cape. Fine art artist Lehi “ThunderVoice Eagle” came and model Sierra Begaye came with southwest looks that had people’s attention, and definitely the photographers. Blogger Jaclyn Roessel aka Grown Up Navajo with Alana aka The Fancy Navajo showed her support. It was a beautiful night with old and new friends. I love designers that are able to incorporate cultural designs in their clothings (it’s not easy).
Here’s a short clip of Aconav’s models.

What can I say about Santa Fe? I LOVED SANTA FE! Met so many great natives there. Inspirational artists that are down to earth people and so many great memories made this past weekend. I finally met Felicia Gabaldon and had our pictures taken. She’s the coolest and glad to buy a painting from her folky and quirky art style that I love. I met Shane Mcsauby, who is an up and coming director/ writer. Leah Rose who is a talented photographer with her beau Robert Mesa, who is another talented photographer and artist. I’m very grateful to be inspired by these multi-talented artist. Kyle Bell, who had done a documentary on Steven Paul Judd. His movie won best documentary and made me want to drop everything and move to Los Angeles (which reminds me I need to make a trip there again). The down to earth Matika Wilbur, the amazing Sho Sho Esquiro, Jeremiah Bitsuie, Wes Studi, Adam Beach, Kawennahere Devery Jacobs, Larry Price, Mama Long Legs, Morning Star Angeline, Sierra Begay, Tytianna Harris, Lehi ThunderVoice Eagle, Tony Duncan, Steven Paul Judd, Ishkiin, OXDX Clothing…
