From TikTok to online retail, new technologies transform the fashion industry to support diverse representation, propagate authentic expression and create accessible professional opportunities. Millennials, known for their technology use, and Gen Z, the first digital natives, thrive in this context. Still, broader Indigenous communities use these technologies to connect with family, sell their beadwork and advance vital social movements. Bringing together three breakthrough Indigenous creatives and moderated by ET Canada host Shayla Stonechild, this panel takes a holistic look at new technologies for the opportunities and risks presented to Indigenous fashion creatives and their local communities.
