Model Owee Rae: Being Herself and Changing Perceptions

Native American model Owee Rae knew she wanted to be a model, even though the career choice challenges many of her Navajo beliefs, including that women should not show parts of their body publicly. Capitalizing on the recent popularity of Native American-influenced fashion, she and other Native American designers are trying to get a foothold in the fashion industry. They’ve been working closely with Arizona State University's AIGSA Fashion Showcase, which will take place on April 17 in Tempe. Rae says the event is a great way to make contacts and get exposure.
