BBP at Zoo Fest

After having our Easter Eggstravaganza at the Window Rock Zoo and Botanical Park this past April, we were invited by the zoo to join them for their annual Zoo Fest this past weekend. We greeted guests as they came through the entrance with our tropical themed photo booth. We had some bake sale items, flower clips, and photo albums of our past events on display.

Like most of our events, the public is always interested in our organization and we were happy to inform and spread the awesome news of what our organization does for the community. It was very surprising to see how many people came to the event! The weather was a lovely sunny and breezy day – a WIN for us.

On March 3rd we were invited to the Dreamers Junction fashion show “A Night to Remember” in Window Rock, Arizona. The showcase included designers Shane Watson of Shayne Watson Designs, Jared Yazzie of OXDX Clothing & Loren Aragon of ACONAV. Although we are usually a part of the big event, this time we behind the scenes creating vintage inspired hair styles for 15 models, this list even included actress Grace Dove of “The Revenant” who starred alongside Leonardo DiCaprio. Each model was given a unique hair style from Victory rolls, bumper bangs, vintage waves to low messy buns to end the show. All hair styles collaborated well with the showcase that included urban streetwear to elegant wedding attire. It was great to see our hair styles being modeled though out the entire event and we would like to thank the owner, Mariah Watchman, of Dreamers Junction for allowing us to be a part of this great event!

OXDX Fall Release 2015 Pt. 2

Since we have done the official BBP recap, we would like to share what others thought about the event! Take a look!

renee“The OXDX Fall Fashion Release show was a phenomenal event that surpassed all expectations! It knocked our socks off to say the least. Krystle and I (as Blue Bird Pinup volunteer and member) were amazed at the quick influx of people entering and signing in to absorb what the show had to offer. Granted we did not view the show in its entirety but we managed to collect and share in the energy and enthusiasm of the performers and spectators. The awesome Bobby Wilson kept the flow of the show and crowd lively with his comedic timing. The ambient beats and enlightening lyrics of Nataanii Means and Supaman had folks engaged, laughing, bobbing their heads and swaying to the groove. The beautiful runway models were absolutely stunning wearing the fashions of Jared OXDX Yazzie, Jesse Metcalf, and Shayne Watson’s clothing line, topped it off with the pinup hairstyles courtesy of Blue Bird Pinups. This is what the show offered – to come together to support and stand by our Native brothers and sisters in a powerful movement of unity and positive representation of old and new contemporary Indigenous artistry. There is definitely no “misrep” when you can pack plenty of Native Americans in one room taking pride in who they are and what they contribute to our society. We are doing big things so make way for more motivated and inspired Indigenous individuals, fashions, and businesses. Big props for a successful show and look forward to next year!” — Roxie Gunz
