What would fashion history look like if Native American designers were consistently represented in mainstream style magazines, department stores and fashion shows?

How would a Hopi designer take 1960s Mod fashion to the next level? How would a Lakota designer add authenticity to '70s hippy style? How would a Navajo designer contribute to Pin-up fashion? And how would a Northwest Coast Haida designer enrich techno culture? What about a Mohawk hip-hop fly-girl stylist? That would be fashion history, to the next level.

These questions are at the core of our upcoming style mixer, RETROSPECTRUM, where we are diving into and playing with the entire spectrum of retro and vintage style. And we want you to join us in Phoenix on Saturday, March 5, 2016. Scroll down to see some of our inspirations for this event. Hover over each image to see the caption, and click on an image to expand and take in all the amazing details!

We hope you will join us in celebrating the intersection of fashion history, Native culture, and personal style. In this unique, fun, and interactive event, we are asking our guests to come dressed to inspire. Bring your fancy, cool, and special style! We are also asking a selection of Native designers and fashionistas to create or compile a look for our "Through the Decades" fashion show.

We are pumped.

So who are your fashion icons? Who are the rockstars or laid back relatives who inspire your style? What's your fashion decade or era of choice? Personally, I think they are all really neat with different vibes that I can appreciate at different moments in my life. I find inspiration in Buffy, Cher, Sacheen Littlefeather, the members of AIM, the designers on the rez, the designers in the desert, college students, artists, and so many others. I think they're all cool and inspiring and I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with for RETROSPECTRUM!
