"American Indian Fashion: From New to Now"
Contrary to what the Victoria's Secret fashion show may have led you to believe, Native American fashion has quite little to do with four-inch heels, blinged-out bras, and garish headdresses. For an idea of what Native fashion is and means, we're happy to direct you toward Heard Museum North Scottsdale.

Located at The Summit at Scottsdale, 32633 North Scottsdale Road, the museum's "American Indian Fashion" explores how the medium has functioned as a method of expression and a reinforcement of identity for Native people. Featured artists include Lloyd Kiva New, a Cherokee designer heralded as the father of contemporary Native American Fashion, and Virgil Ortiz, a Cochiti designer who blends art, d├ęcor, and fashion.

Make the trip before both the exhibit closes April 1. The museum close will permanently close on Saturday, May 31. Hours on Thursday, January 23, are 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission for adults is $5. Visit www.heard.org/north or call 480-488-9817. -- Becky Bartkowski
