Navajo fashion designer to show collection at Museum of Northern Arizona July 20
The Museum of Northern Arizona (MNA) will be the best-dressed spot in Flagstaff during the Native American Fashion and Jewelry Showcase at 5:30 p.m. July 20.
The fashion show will feature Navajo designer Bonnie Wood, whose clothing collection will be enhanced by Native American jewelry hand picked by Museum Shop experts.
Woodie will present her Native-inspired fashions known for their clean designs, quality construction and beautiful beadwork.
"Anything handmade is magical, mystical and a treasure," Woodie said.
Her work infuses the traditional and colorful landscapes of the Diné Nation into modern fashion. Woodie was the first Native American to show her line in Milano, Italy.
Hopi musician Ed Kabotie will perform his music and serve as host of the event. Kabotie is a MNA artist-in-residence. His heritage is his inspiration. His vision as an artist is to express the virtues of his Native American cultures. These expressions take the forms of overlay jewelry, watercolor paintings, traditional pottery and English, Hopi and Tewa musical compositions.
Light refreshments will be available along with a cash bar. Tickets are $10 for non-members and $8 for members. Tickets are available before the event at the MNA front desk or the day of the show at 5:30 p.m.
