The event included a panel discussion and showcased work from Native and upcoming fashion designers.

Yaamava’ Resort & Casino at San Manuel recently hosted its Yaamava’ Fashion Daze. The two-day weekend event aimed to “break down the barriers between Native American design and the established world of fashion,” and celebrated both indigenous and global fashion trends.

The recent Fashion Daze brought with it a list of notable designers and celebrities, including model and actress Julia Fox, Jeannie Mai and Paris Jackson.

The show features designs by Jamie Okuma, who is the first Native American designer to join the Council of Fashion Designers of America, along with indigenous creators Jennifer Younger, Orlando Dugi and Section35. Collections from Custo Barcelona, Vira Be, Freak City LA and Cult of Individuality were also showcased during Fashion Daze.

Okuma participated in a panel discussion during the event, along with actress Amber Midthunder and San Manuel Tribal citizens Amaris Calderon and Sabrina Contreras. The panel tackled the topics of cultural appropriation, as well as representation and reclamation in the worlds of fashion, film and art.  

Yaamava’ Resort & Casino at San Manuel is located nearly 70 miles from downtown Los Angeles and is owned and operated by the San Manuel Entertainment Authority.  The casino offers players more than 7,000 slot machines and features five high-limit gaming rooms.

Yaamava’ is also home to more than a dozen bars and lounges, as well as to luxury retail shops and a 17-floor hotel.

The casino recently installed Everi Holdings’ Dynasty Vue cabinet. The deployment included the Combo Cash Series, which features both the Rockin’ Reels and Secret Treasures basic themes.
