After a two-year pandemic hiatus, Vancouver Indigenous Fashion Week (VIFW) returns to the Queen Elizabeth Theatre on Nov. 28 - Dec. 2, 2022 for its third edition, with the goal of rekindling joy in the face of grief. New collections from 32 Indigenous fashion designers from across Turtle Island (North America) will sashay the runway on models of First Nation / Métis / Inuit descent. In between shows, guests can shop for gifts from Indigenous vendors and enjoy musical performances by The Wolfpack, Snotty Nose Rez Kids, Soul Shakers, DJ O Show, DJ Kookum, and more. 

As in previous editions, VIFW launches its opening night with the Red Dress Event, hosted by Lorelei Williams, founder of Butterflies in Spirit. Guests are encouraged to wear red in honour of missing and murdered Indigenous women, girls and 2SLGBTQ+ community. On Dec. 2, Van Vogue Jam, hosted by Indigenous leader Khelsilem Tl’aḵwasiḵ̓an Sxwchálten, closes VIFW with a vogue ball, featuring drag and catwalk battles for trophies, prizes, and glory.
