1st Tlicho Fashion Show will be held on Aboriginal Day

People from Wekweeti, Whati, Gameti and Behchoko are taking the Paradigm Esteem Level I: I Am Beautiful Because... (TM)  Self Esteem Motivational Modeling Program taking place in the Charlie Charlo Building. 

Students will be modeling traditional cultural fashions that many have designed and sewn themselves at the first Tlicho Fashion Show on June 21st starting at 1pm at the Behchoko Cultural Centre.   Clothing was made by sewing groups in the Tlicho region supported by the Economic Development Officers and Cultural Practises of the Department of Culture and Land protection of the Tlicho Government.

The Tlicho students are learning professional 'photo movement' and 'ramp and runway' a form of physical body confidence and self-awareness.  As a result on Saturday June 20 the Tlicho students will be modeling in a professional photo shoot with the Paradigm Esteem Fashion Experts allowing them to see how beautiful they are 'as is'.  

A sample of their graduation photos will be displayed in the upcoming first ever Tlicho Fashion Show at the culture centre Sunday, June 21, 2015 at 1pm.  

Paradigm Esteem travels mainly to Aboriginal and Metis communities across Canada, helping individuals learn the importance of self-esteem allowing a healthier sense of self awareness, confidence and overall self-worth.  Professional self-esteem lessons are taught by Multiple International Award Winner, President/Founder Amanda Welliver who was the stuttering suicidal geek to the captain of the cheerleading squad to recognized woman entrepreneur, using her own methods written in her authored textbooks.  www.paradigmesteem.com

Come to support and enjoy an incredible positive fun event full of fashion, smiles, confidence and overall pride of the Tlicho culture!
