Backstage at Vancouver's Indigenous Fashion Week

Vancouver is holding its first Indigenous Fashion Week, spotlighting designs by Canada's aboriginal peoples.

Almost 60 First Nations designers and models have joined forces for the four-day event, which opened on 26 July.

The show's organiser, former international model Joleen Mitton, hopes those involved will leave "with a sense of pride in themselves, and in their culture".
