    June 13<sup>th</sup>, 2009 <st1:place w:st="on"><st1:city w:st="on">Schaumburg</st1:city>, <st1:state w:st="on">IL</st1:state></st1:place>-The American Indian Center of Chicago’s Trickster Gallery is excited to announce its very first Navajo Fashion Show. Up-and-coming Navajo designer, LeAnn Ward, along with her mother Lillian Bancroft from <st1:state w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">Arizona</st1:place></st1:state>, will showcase their one-of-a-kind traditional and contemporary designs on the runway. Their beautiful fashions will be modeled by young Native American girls and boys, ages newborn to teens, from the <st1:city w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">Chicago</st1:place></st1:city> area. This event is the first of its kind in <st1:city w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">Chicago</st1:place></st1:city>.<o:p></o:p>

    “I started sewing in mid-2007, but before that I always used to design my own clothing in high school and have my mom sew them for me. I knew that I always wanted to carry on the tradition of sewing, and once I became a mother, it was my calling to start,” says designer LeAnn Ward. “My mother Lillian Bancroft has been sewing since junior high. To this day she sews for her mother, my Grandma Nez Bancroft, whose naturally woven rug will be in the show as well. My Grandma is a rug weaver and pottery maker who speaks only Navajo.”<o:p></o:p>
    The public is welcome to attend at <st1:street w:st="on"><st1:address w:st="on">190 South Roselle Road</st1:address></st1:street> in <st1:place w:st="on"><st1:city w:st="on">Schaumburg</st1:city>, <st1:state w:st="on">IL</st1:state></st1:place>. There you can enjoy music performed by the current Miss Indian Chicago 2009, Arissa Yolanda St. Germaine, as well as 2008’s Miss Indian Chicago, Jasmine Alfonso. On hand will be local Native arts and crafts vendors, with traditional Native American food being served.<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p> </o:p>
    Designs by LeAnn Ward have previously been exhibited as part of the Native American Women’s Artists Guild and Spirited Daughters, which are both Chicago area organizations featuring Native American female artists. This is her and her mother’s first show, and will represent three generations, as LeAnn’s daughters will be modeling during the show. The designs will be on display in the gallery through the end of August and available for purchase.<o:p></o:p>

    In addition to the Navajo Fashion Show, Trickster Gallery will be opening two new exhibits June 13: The Office of Indian Education’s 2008 student competition exhibit “Circle of Empowerment: Education, Language, Culture, Tradition” and its first multicultural show by 2009 graduates of the American Academy of Art in Chicago.<o:p></o:p>
